Vintage Heirloom Necklace

My mum loves this necklace, which belonged to my Great Gran.
Unfortunately, there were no earrings or bracelet to match. So I have been on the lookout for a couple of years for some matching blue beads. The photos do not show it clearly, but the blue is a vibrant blue and nothing seemed to match up right. Until the Hobbycraft Sale last Christmas. I came across a pack of bright blue glass beads for 99p! I bought them, too them to my mu, and they were the almost (about 99%) perfect colour match!
Upon examining the necklace, I noticed the beading string was badly worn and the beads needed a good tidy. So I brouhgt it back home with me, restrung it onto new stronger string and made a Matching bracelet and earrings.

And here is the bracelet and earrings alongside the necklace:
