This chain is 36" long with 14 spaced 1/2" grey and abalone pearls set in silver. The added 4 1/2" cross was not the original as it was lost so this one is soldered on for safety. Also the clasp does not open as also soldered but at this length it slips over one's head with ease. It can be removed and the beautiful chain can have a different attachment. A very special Late Victorian early 1900's original piece. This necklace lies flat and is a nice long length. It is sure to be commented on as it is quite regal.
