Designers Badgley and Mischka, two men, who met in design school and started their business of designing gowns, shoes, purses and jewelry in 1985. Wedding designs were added in 1993. Never worn, this older piece is as good as new, with faux pearls, crystal cut beads and gold metal chain. Badgley Mischka was the name given to the company in 1988 and this is marked Badly Mischka. The duo decorators are big in the Hollywood realm. Beautiful, the necklace is 16 inches with a 3 inch extension. It hugs close to the neck like a choker with the lovely and well made shell pendant hanging down. The pendant is 2 1/4 inches long. Perfect.
