Layaway Available Only once in a lifetime does one come across something as incredible as this HC marked (Hattie Carnegie) bib collar necklace. Setting is a gold colored metal plate , each coin or panel is highly detailed with a rope around each piece ..with 3 V's etched into each coin, there is a raised design of silver colored tubes...with a bullet glass stone in each end, there are also large bullet ruby colored glass stones that are between each coin, the bullets are highly domed and sit high in their prongs, I have taken a photo to show from the side what these look like. This is truly a collectors piece as you may never see it again, I have never seen one in 30 years of collecting. There are 2 rows of the designed necklace , it sits like a dream on the neck.
Necklace resembles something from Roman days.
Very heavy!! Sits very close to the neck choker style .
Just about impossible to measure because of the collar shape, I have measured this up with a choker necklace and it is about the same (15) inches give or take an inch because of the style. If you can wear a normal choker and have a thin neck it will be fine. There is a hook for the clasp.
The necklace is marked HC on the back . This is a 1940's mark.
Condition is excellent
