Lariat-type necklaces have been popular in several distinct eras, and are once again hitting the fashion scene. This necklace is from the 1950s and is a really sweet piece that reflects the design aesthetics of the time. The chain features attractive gold-tone anchor links with decorative cone fobs at the ends. The slide is a black enameled hoop with gold-tone edges; a clear rhinestone sits atop the hoop. The slide is permanently attached to the chain on one side, and snaps out the other so length can be adjusted.
Total chain length is 19-1/2 inches; the slide element is ¾ inch. Condition is excellent.
