This large sterling silver and crystal bead necklace is unusual for several reasons. First, the fifty-nine crystal beads are a dark gray/brown color with an iridescent aurora borealis finish. Second, the crucifix and medal are beautiful and different than most, and lastly, the back of both are signed, *344N Italy 925" for the maker and sterling. It measures 28" around the neck and the drop adds another 7" to the length. This rosary is in excellent condition, but if you examine it under magnification, you will find a tiny bit of very minor wear to the aurora borealis from finish from normal handling, and it does not distract from the beauty.
