If you are a political junkie as I am, you would recognize the color and the style of this dashing Pearl-like choker. Our Present Speaker of the House has these Spectacular Brownish Pearls (real of course) that really give that special look. These pearl-like bead are just that color and the faceted cut beads make this just so special. These are by that Wonderful Jewelry Company Lisner. This necklace is 16 inches not counting the hook. The beads are almost 1/2 inch. So Elegant and Superior and a wonderful necklace for those V neck jackets. I think if you had this necklace you could also be a Powerful Speaker of the House!! And I could advise you---? From Kansas power!!
