If you love bold jewelry, this piece is divine! It’s comprised of two rows of double-link chains connected to each other by textured silver-tone rings. The two rows come together like a lariat necklace to create a four-row drop. For maximum bling, the silver-tone ring connectors are doubled up in the drop portion of the necklace, and each of the four ends of the drop has three silver-tone rings. The description reminds me of the nursery rhyme about “how many were going to St. Ives,” but forget the arithmetic: it all adds up to one spectacular necklace! The piece has no clasp; it simply slips over the head. Total length is about 40”, the drop or tassel section accounts for 5 of those inches. I believe the necklace is from the 1980s, when gold chains were enormously popular, although there is a possibility it is a runway piece from the 1960s. Either way, it’s a showstopper!
