This necklace is comprised of bow segments that are full of black dot pastes. The necklace has 18k white gold ends ( marked 18k ) that hold a black cord. This was done in the 1930's, possibly to modify the necklace which would have had different ends. The paste part is 8 inches long, and the total length of the necklace is 18 inches. The pates are hand cut and hand set into silver ( acid tested and guaranteed). A very classy and showy necklace. C. 1790.
