A perfect match beats a great marriage any day of the week...or so it goes in the world of vintage costume jewelry sets and suites and such. Laguna makes it all happen with this super sweet black beauty of a demi. Four graduated rows of luxurious faceted jet black glass beads wrap around the neck for shimmer and shine beyond compare. Silvertone end bars crank it up a notch set with brilliant crystal clear chaton rhinestones. Matching domed button style clip earrings are wired with tiers of complementing beads. Laguna lives up to it's name as a premier maker of vintage bead jewelry. Anything but basic black.
The demi includes the four strand necklace, it's top strand adjustable to about 16 inches with bead extension tail and hook style closure.
