The colors of this necklace are glorious. The main color is red. The beads are all the same color. But the bow is half red and half burgundy. That is not all. The tow has silvertone accents which are inlaid. The clasp is goldtone metal so I am thinking that may be a replacement. All of the components are glass. The back of the bow is marked G.GES. That mark indicates the necklace was made in Germany. The beads are hand knotted in between. They are faceted and graduated in size. Necklace is about 23" long. The bow is about 2" long and just under 1 5/8" wide. There is a tiny mark on the red loop of the bow. It looks like a manufacturing imperfection. There is some minor wear on the metal at the ends of the bow, consistent with the age and use of this piece. Otherwise this necklace is in excellent condition. If you are looking for something different this may be for you.
