This is a fabulous vintage Czech necklace with topaz beads. They are all glass and have such interesting shapes. It is impossible to find beads of this quality and style any more. You would pay a fortune for something similar in a bead shop. Necklace is 14 1/2" long. The barrel shaped beads have many facets around the sides. The others are a cluster of three beads together. There are filigree end caps on the barrel beads except for the one on one end and goldtone spacers between the cluster beads. Oddly I see plastic stringing near both ends of the clasp. I don't know if it has been completely re-strung or just had the clasp added. It is secure the way it is. You can always have it re-strung with chain added for more length or it can be worn just the way it is.
