A super long (56 Inch) vintage Murano beaded rope necklace consisting of 158 luminous spheres of Murano glass , illuminated from within by flecks of gold. The beads are strung on a strong wire ,adapted to the weight of these beads, which is considerable. This is a substantial necklace weighing 165 grams. Each Murano bead is bordered by a tiny seed bead, which stop the beads from rubbing against each other , thus protecting them. Sunlight has an incredible effect on the gold flecks inside the beads, lighting them up from within, creating a beautiful warm golden amber colour. The condition is excellent.
