Mr. Jim Schlosser was a one-time I. Magnin window dresser. He made many trips abroad to fashion shows. He acquired his collection from these shows, trips , and window mannequins. Some, he said, were even worn by "the rich and famous"! This gorgeous necklace is 28" long with a lobster clasp. It features wonderful gold tone beads with an art glass look. It also has smooth and moulded root beer colored beads. The beads are most likely lucite, but the root beer beads have a feel of glass. It is so difficult to tell with high quality jewelry as this. This is a rich looking beautiful necklace to dress up or down! It is in excellent condition.
