Bright and shiny Gold tone metal "stacks" forming a continuous coil of "pipe". Faux Butter scotch Amber beads with fancy filigree end caps accent. Marked W. Germany on the hook clasp. This is really a terrific piece and can be worn as high as a dog collar directly around the throat or lower at the base of the neck. Fits most necks securely due to the natural tension of the design. Very Comfortable. Diameter opens to 15 1/2" before using the chain extension, that extension adds another 2 3/4" as necessary. Ca., 1960's and is in Very good condition.
