This is a lovely antique Austro Hungarian necklace chain composed of 900 silver with a slight gilded finish over the the wider portion, and set with turquoise stones. There is a sterling mark on the clasp but I suspect the clasp is a later replacement. The metal otherwise tests postive for silver content slightly below sterling grade and is estimated to be 900 silver.
This necklace is 16.5" long. The first segment of plainer chain is 4.75". The wider more decorative portion is 7.25", and the final plain chain length is 4.5". The wider portion of the chain is .5" wide. The total weight is 16.1 gr.
Condition is good. Note that the clasp may be a replacement.
This fine antique chain will look good with everything from jeans to a cocktail dress.
