This necklace is 17 inches with 2 1/2 inch chain extender, then there is a 2 3/4 inch pendant of Onyx and beads. This is a lovely and very useful necklace, easy to wear and put on and off. It is a nice black and dark color. The 17 inches are mostly carnival beads of a green-black. Two Oval onyx beads and two smoky beads and there are a couple dark crystals. The closure is lobster claw closure with 2 1/2 inches of extender chain. This is close to your throat and the pendant would hang below your pulse spot on your neck. You need a nice slender neck. For you from Kansas!
