I love this color red. This necklace is perfect for the holidays. No makers marks. There are bright red rhinestones, and deep purple/black rhinestones. The metal is a dark grey. All the rhinestones are prong-set. None missing. None replaced that I am aware of. Length can be from 15", and can be shortened by 4" by a simple hook. The necklace is in very good condition for age. I would date this pretty necklace at c 1950's-60's. The white circles that you see in the stones is just camera glare.
