This beautiful necklace glows. The Murano beads have a black base but the gold and green foil applied to the base covers most of the surface. 18" long and the large beads are 3/8", and the translucent and gold tone beads between are tiny. The 3/8" beads have filigree end caps. Brass screw fastener. The matching earrings are 1 3/8" from the bend in the shepherd's hook. Excellent vintage condition. The Venetians made the glass makers move to the island of Murano in 1291 to keep the secrets of glass making.
