Lovely necklace with freshwater seed pears along with black and turquoise beads. Gorgeous, vintage necklace, but does not hang as long as some of the pictures make it look. It comes up close on the neck but not "choker" close.
Vintage and lovely with a sterling silver clasp and marked "925" on the silver beads that is part of the chain clasp. Four strands of real seed pearls, four strands of small cut crystal beads and three strands of turquoise beads. Under a magnifying glass the turquoise looks to be natural stone as it has matrix in the small beads. Much of turquoise used in jewelry like this is natural stone filled in with resin and dyes for more stability and uniform color.
It is 20 inches long with a 2 inch chain where it can hang an extra 2 inches. It is 1 1/4 inches in width. Very striking.
