    Default Pearl necklace casing

    Hello,

    I wanted to create a thread about pearl casing and it's variety of design.
    I now own several good examples, from various french and english jewellers, big houses or unknown jewellers, from I think late XIX to 40's.
    Here are two casings I have, with pearls inside, the first case is probably from 30's to 50's period, not easy to get sure.
    It's made from leather imitation paper, no brand, I used it for my first restring.
    Second is older, probably 1910 or earlier, the necklace inside is very old.
    Third is probably victorian era, it's for a pearl and amethyst necklace, empty for now, because it's hard to find such a necklace for a decent price even it's still not the most expensive.

    A new case, I put a necklace inside for the picture.
    I think original necklace inside had a silver clasp with single diamond, victorial era.
    Sadly, I bought such a necklace a year ago with a shorter section and TWO diamond clasps, but it was stolen during shipping.

    How fascinating; the cases are so carefully made with their elegant velvets and satin; I have a charming brooch case from my Grandmother. The brooch was made into a pendant, but needs repair, so it's tucked away.

    Is the last case leather?

    I've been searching for a spiral cases for my natural strands - I think they're so lovely! I wish current day case makers would revive them...

    I think it's more a bracelet case, but I got and saw some necklaces in similar cases.
    I think it's from 50's
