This is for a woman with the neck of a swan! It is 835 European Silver of Austrian origin. The maker is R. RANFT. The wearable length is 14 1/4". The stones are garnet and there are real pearls -- I would guess more correctly described as cultured pearls.

The center piece measures 2" by 1 7/8". The piece is ornate -- even the clasp -- and striking. It is in excellent condition.

I have had a RANFT piece previously that was similar to this necklace. It had the hoopoe bird mark of Austria. This has two impressed marks that are not legible, but I assume at least one is the hoopoe bird. It is known that R. RANFT is an Austrian mark. When I purchased this necklace the seller claimed that R. Ranft was in Salzburg at the end of the 1800s. I have not been successful in confirming that information although I have tried. This does have a Baroque design quality but the hoopoe mark extended into the 1900s.
