This necklace is impressive in size and beautiful to see. There are five plaques splashed with gold color and a double chain along the front. Around the back the chain is a single row of beads. The beads are about 9.5mm and the center plaque measures just under 2" x 1 3/4" wide. You will note that there are some small goldtone accent beads and spacers. Necklace is 29 1/2" long and has a spring ring clasp. The beads are plastic but I am not sure about the plaques. They are not plastic but I think they are ceramic. I love the look of this necklace and have never seen another one like it. Necklace is in excellent condition.
