What a fabulous accessory for any blue outfit! This necklace is made from sterling with 3 rows of lapis chips. Puka shell style! The necklace has a large 1 3/4" x 1" puffy kite shaped silver center with three rows of lapis coming from both sides. They lead into silver spacer beads and then another kite. It is finished off with silver oblong beads and then a locking clasp. The entire length is 17 1/2 inches long. It is simply signed .925 for the silver standard of sterling with no makers mark. It is a beautiful necklace and made very welI. I am going to take a guess that it was made in Central America or one of the Caribbean islands.
