Richelieu is best known for its use of faux pearls during that back-to-elegance 'Jackie O' era. This beautiful necklace typifies their use of big round faux pearls,,,supporting an antiqued gold-tone medallion set with a large pearl cabochon and surrounded by crystal rhinestones. It's the perfect mix to create a classic accessory.
The necklace measures 16 inches around by 1 1/8 inches wide at center. The pearls are 10mm wide. Necklace is marked RICHELIEU on both the back of the clasp and the centerpiece. It has a secure foldover clasp. Excellent condition. (The reflection of the goldtone creates light and dark spots in the photos but the necklace is evenly nice and bright all over.)
