This is a necklace right out of my teens. The very gold plated necklace and disk shaped pendant are gold plated base metal with enamel work on the pendant. The necklace is 28" long and the pendant 3 1/2" long by 2" wide including the spikes on the bottom. The pendant has spikes on the bottom and interior circles in enameled paint of black, green and red.
When we were children my cousins and I got to hang out at Venice Beach, Ca. with our grandmothers. It was populated with colorful Beatnicks and later Hippies that we admired so much at the time. This necklace looks to be of that era. I looked for marks on the back fully expecting to see Salvador Dali or Picasso. It is however unsigned.
This piece is perfect for a costume designer or set designer making a period piece.
The condition is good.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
