This is a very pretty Trifari gold tone necklace. It measures 20 1/2" long and has the Trifari hang tag. The closure is a screw-in type that isn't noticeable when worn. The gold colored beads have a net look to them. I'm not sure what type of metal this is, but the necklace is heavy. The beads have gold colored spacers. I'm not sure what the necklace looked like new, but it appears that the gold color looks worn on the edges when looked at through a loupe. The wear pattern is uniform, so I don't know if that was an intentional effect. It is still a beautiful piece. Please email me with any questions.
