This is a fabulous old pearl necklace. Its age, weight and coloring lead me to believe these are glass faux pearls: note there is a golden sheen to them. The goldtone clasp with three pearls and faux diamond is a box clasp style that shows just a little wear but works perfectly. Some age is evident at the points where the pearl strings attach to the clasp, but the strength of the connections appears very good. None of the pearls appears to have any blistering or other condition issues.
The pearls are 1/8 of an inch diameter and the two strands are slightly different lengths so they lay correctly when worn. The shorter strand is about 18 and 1/2 inches long, the longer is about 19 and 1/2" long. The clasp is 3/4 of an inch wide and tall, and is 3/8 of an inch deep. The goldtone layer is only very slightly worn at the tips of the 'leaves'. This is one of the best older pearl necklaces I have seen.
