This kind of graduated necklace was crafted by the Ralph Lauren after the style of Romanesque Revival. I have had this piece for several years making sure that "RL" is the stamp to authenticate this piece now I have acquired a yes to that query. There are very few other signed listings of Lauren on Ruby Lane, as his pieces are rare and only just now becoming vintage collectable. The necklace measures 18" long on this gold plated chain with iconic closure where the stamp is on the bar of the decorated closure. The design is very subtle and executed to perfection. The topaz drop briolette gems look like a garnets in some light and smokey quartz in another but have been authenticated as real brown Topaz stones with a weight of 33 ct. The appraised value of this piece is given as $1475 in the certified appraisal and when you add the cost of the appraisal you get a full value of $1575. The smallest tear shape gems are wired to the chain and the next set adds a facetted rondelle and then a larger tear shape briolette, then a set with a slightly larger rondelle and tear together and then double rondelles with the center tear shape briolette. This is a very fine piece of Romanesque Revival jewelry by the famed Ralph Lauren.
