Over the years I have had many Weiss necklaces but never one this impressive. The center of this necklace is huge. There are five links, each with a large aurora borealis teardrop in the center surrounded by diamante rhinestones. It is gorgeous. It is worthy of the grandest of occasions - limited only by your imagination. Necklace is goldtone metal. The center (measured from the larger rhinestones along the chain) is 8" across. The five large plaques are 1 1/8" top to bottom and just under 1" wide. Necklace is adjustable to 16 1/4". There is minor wear to the surface of the aurora stones, noticeable when the necklace is tilted towards the light. This is consistent with its age and wear. This necklace is in excellent condition. I am also listing a pair of Weiss earrings that are almost a match. The centers are round instead of teardrops but the stones match perfectly.
