Coro's top of the line Vendome specialized in quality bead work, in this presentation incorporating aurora borealis crystals, simulated pearls, and golden disks. The two row necklace, circa 1960s, features large imitation pearls interspersed with faceted glass ab crystals, round gold tone disks, saucer shaped ab crystals and faux pearl seed beads. You get the luster of pearls, the sparkle and colors of aurora borealis crystals and the golden twist of space age disks -- all in Vendome's double strand delight.
The necklace's top strand is adjustable to about 17 1/2 inches with pearl extension chain and embellished hook closure. Bottom strand drapes about 1 inch longer. Largest faux pearls are approximately 12 millimeters; largest ab glass beads, about 10 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is 66 grams.
