The examples in this listing are contemporary reproductions of Trifari's 1969 "Fishnet necklace" costume jewelry design. We are showing examples of the same reproduction necklace, marked "Hong Kong," in two different colors, white and pink. Other colors may be available. These new plastic bead and gold tone collar necklaces are woven in a fishnet-type pattern, from which hang medium sized plastic ball beads.
Trifari added marked metal hang tags on many necklaces with hook closures like the clasps on the necklaces in this listing. It would not be difficult to remove a tag from a damaged authentic Trifari piece and attach it to a reproduction item to try to pass it off as an original necklace. So check for quality and specific characteristics known to be part of the original design, like the number of rows in the 'net.' The reproduction examples have fewer rows. The quality of the beads used to trim the edges is also lower than those used in authentic pieces from the 20th century.
For comparison purposes the last 2 photos in this listing show an vintage original Trifari fishnet necklace and a 1969 Trifari fishnet necklace magazine advertisement.
The necklace length is adjustable from 18" to 20 1/2" inches long.
