Shiny gold color, thick curb link chain. Clear chatons and large, 3/4 inch vivid red glass emerald cut rhinestones. Substantial and Not a timid piece. The original length is 17 inches and a 3 inch extender has been added at some point along its journey. We are happy to remove upon request. The solder points for 2 chatons at either end of the red stones is no longer connected. Seems as though this may have been done intentionally after manufacturer to allow for proper movement and positioning of the necklace when worn. These areas wear so close to each other that you cannot see the imperfection from the front or back unless you are specifically looking for it. This piece is clean, bold, bright and sparkles like crazy. Wears beautifully! Priced for the imperfection. Ca., 1990's.
