This festive festoon necklace is by Modernist 1980s Italian designer Toni Laura. This vintage necklace is old store stock with original tag on it with retail price of $165.
The aurora borealis glass beads look like carnival glass in deep blue, magenta, and gold hues. There's a double row of the beads with gold-tone metal rods connecting them...a ladder effect with sparkle from every direction. Eight dangles of rods and beads hang below.
The necklace measures 16 inches around, ending in a gold-tone screw barrel clasp. The center fringe is 4 inches long. The old hangtag is marked TONI LAURA - MADE IN ITALY.
This necklace is in excellent unworn condition. (There are no beads missing at the ends of those two dangles. We checked it through a magnifier to see if anything was removed or broken...there's no sign of any foul play. This is just part of the design...the whim of the designer.)
