Panetta is a name you will definitely remember once you have owned a piece of his jewelry. He was trained in the art of making fine jewelry so used those techniques when he began his own company. The only difference is that he made costume jewelry under his own name. This lovely single strand of faux pearls is about 29" long. The clasp is pretty and can be worn along one side or at the back of the neck. The faux pearls are glass. They are about 7.5mm and are hand knotted in between each one. The plating is excellent and the necklace is in like-new condition. It is signed Panetta.
