This is one of the most fabulous necklaces I have owned. The base of the necklace is a book chain with embossed designs. Embellishing each link is a three piece crystal with three colored beads. There is one crystal and bead above the chain and two below. The crystals are the main part of the necklace but it is the tiny colored beads that make this so supreme. The colored beads are jewel colors of red, green and blue. The whole effect is just magical. Necklace measures about 16 inches. It has a spring ring clasp so an extender can be added easily. It is 1 1/2 inches wide. There is normal wear to the goldtone metal of the necklace and two tiny missing colored beads. You can see the missing beads in Picture 3. They are around the back of the necklace. I believe this to be a Czech piece. It is in excellent condition and ready to wear for those of you who prefer your vintage jewelry to look vintage.
