This is a long flapper strand of natural gem stones. This is a lovely natural string of beads. Some are knotted to make the strand stable. This was put together by the Three Ladies Company from the 80, the small metal label fell off. There are many different stones, rose quartz and different types of freshwater cultured pearls and onyx. This would look lovely loose or knotted or wrapped twice around your neck. I don,t see any chipped gem stones. To you from Kansas.
