This is one of the most gorgeous necklaces I have ever had. There are three strands of opalescent glass beads with four black glass plaques along the sides. The necklace does not have a clasp. It slips over your head and it drapes beautifully. All of the opalescent beads are hand knotted in between and there are small goldtone spacers between them and the black plaques. You will feel magnificent when you wear this. Necklace is about 30" long and the plaques are 1 1/8" x 5/8". Necklace is in excellent condition and the small beads have a lovely glow. They are about 7.5mm. This beautiful piece is a true showstopper.
