This piece is all about sparkle aplenty! It has a complex design and is so finally made that it is of designer quality, albeit there is not signature on this finely made necklace. The single strand is 15 in long and as such it would fit a smaller neck. The necklace drapes and is 5 and 3/4 in long, from the single strand. It is composed of Russian gold beads, which are extremely rich in hue, being about 5/6 mm in size.
Dangles/drops are suspended along the single strand. Until where the strand meets the drape, five colorful round beads hang on either side. The drop beads are about 10/12 mm in size and all the hues of green, red, and blue are utilized, though not in a specific pattern of color. All the beads have serrated caps, with a rivet passing through each of them. All of the colored beads are secured from jump rings, which separate the gold tone beads from each other, where each drop is suspended. Along the portion of the strand from which the drape emanates, there is a series of 10 drops,, again not in a specific color pattern.
The drape consists of five other strands of the Russian gold beads, which criss cross, forming a deep V when worn. Suspended from longest part of the V, there are 18 further drops, again attached as noted above. The single strand which goes around the neck closes with a barrel screw clasp. It is in fabulous vintage condition, circa 1940's-1950's. Get your glow on with this one!
