This is a magnificent pendant necklace designed by the world famous Alfred Philippe. It holds Patent #151,709, which was filed on August 2, 1948. Very unusual chain on this necklace, the clasp is marked Sterling. The pendant is Rhodium plated and 1 1/2" tall. The top of the pendant with the connectors measures 2 1/2". The chain is 6" from pendant to clasp on each side. The detail on this piece is outstanding, much more along the lines of fine jewelry. Unfortunately, at some prior point in its life, someone removed all the small round stones, 12 total. Since they were clear, they could be replaced. Actually, it is very difficult to see that they are missing, unless you get up very close. The colored stones appear to be blue, but in reality, they are more of a green color. A few of the tiny "diamonds" are missing, but in pretty good shape overall considering it is 56 years old.
