I love everything about this Monet necklace. The cream and black enamel is classic and can be worn year 'round. The chain is a chunky goldtone metal. The three center plaques are convex in shape, not flat. When worn this necklace curves beautifully around the neckline. It is one of those pieces that always looks great! Necklace is 20 3/8" long and about 7/8" wide at the center front. It is signed Monet on the center plaque and the clasp. This necklace is in excellent condition.
