Absolutely positively scrumptious, stunningly gorgeous big, bold and daring - What more can I say?
This necklace is top notch all the way. Very high quality piece with superior design elements and construction.
Necklace is composed of long gold tone openwork panels or links. Not sure if they are actually considered links, as they do no attach to anything, but rather lie next to each other in such close proximity that there is virtually no space between them. They are strung on a metal wire.
Each of these lovely panels has an etched or deeply brushed pattern framed with sparkling raised gold tone edges. Each link or panel has an etched portion on the right and an openwork design on the left.
Suspended and dangling from each open design is a simulated pearl. Pearls are graduated in size ranging from approximately 5 mm to 10 mm. At the end of the panels is a chain of small pearls with gold tone batons dangling from between each pearl.
Pearls are not fully round but have several sides- almost like they were pinched slightly when formed. These might be considered baroque pearls as they are irregular in shape. They are lustrous and just beautiful.
Signed Trifari on the Shepherds hook.
During the 1950's and 60's, Trifari used shepherds hook clasps on many necklaces. Due to the fact that they were narrow, they did not include the crown symbol, but necklaces did have the metal Crown Trifari hang tag located near the clasp. The Crown Trifari metal hang tag is located directly before the first baton on this piece.
Necklace measures 15" from the shepherds hook to the beginning of the large finishing pearl at the end of the string of pearls.
Condition is excellent. there is no wear to the gold. As you can see the finish is sublime, Pearls look great, too.
