This is a gold plated brushed finish collar style necklace. It is 17" long and lies on the collar bone very well. The necklace is made up of metal bars in several widths set next to one another tightly. They are bound together with invisible wire built into two places for flexibility. The bars are 1 1/2" long in the front and as narrow as 3/4" at the fold over clasp at the back. This necklace wears well, it is comfortable and the condition is very nice.
