Pendant of sterling silver with the crystal in a raised, slightly domed, open sided setting much like a ring. The necklace has a beautiful and unusual chain with the tiniest of S shaped links twisted and throwing off lots of sparkle. The 23 inch fine chain is lovely in its own right and marked 925 Italy. The pendant although not marked, acid tests as sterling. Pendant is one inch including the bale by 5/8 inches and about 5mm deep. Very exquisite, delicate piece of jewelry.
