This is a beautiful multi-strand gold necklace by Italian jewelry designer, Leo Pizzo.
This striking retired necklace combines multiple 18K white gold chains with gold balls that have been encrusted with brilliant diamonds. Each gold chain is strung with a diamond ball set with approx. 25 one point diamonds, for a total carat weight of just over one carat. The necklace has a beautiful elegant look thanks to the multiple strands that appear to have been darkened slightly to allow the diamonds to really stand out. Each ball measures 5 mm.
Necklace fastens with an oversized 18K gold lobster clasp and weighs 14.5 grams. It's a really versatile piece that you can wear casually or with fancy dress. These are the best kind of pieces to have in your jewelry box!
The necklace contains a small lozenge that is hallmarked with the Pizzo company logo, "750" for 18K gold, maker number "2041", and "AL" for the city of Alessandria.
