This gorgeous double-strand, choker necklace is composed of various size faceted aurora borealis crystal beads; the larger size crystals are darker shades of blue, bronze, rose, purple etc., with a combination of filigree black w/gold, bronze or gold-tone decorative end-caps and small gold-tone metal bead spacers. The smaller size crystals are in lighter shades without end-caps. The double-strands of the choker necklace measure 13" & 15" inches in length with an additional 2 1/2" extender of small gold-tone aspirin rhinestones. The hook catch is adorned with a flower and marked "Vendome". The condition is near mint with little or no visible ware to metal or settings. Classy is an understatement for its color and style
