Napier commands attention with it's '80s vintage massive medallion pendant necklace . Wide, thick semi flexible golden chain links encircle the neck, choker style. A huge gold tone bail suspends a majestic, hinged medallion pendant, framed in both shiny gold tone and silver tone. At top a faux onyx faceted, cup set glass stone rests. Within the framework a matte / satin finished golden plaque displays a dimensional, four horse drawn chariot and accompanying charioteer at full throttle. Shiny gold tone and silver tone and golden matte finishes are beautifully coordinated by Napier, complete with crowing jewel.
The choker style necklace is a wearable length of approximately 16 inches with fold over clasp. The 1/2 inch thick semi flexible chain lays flat about the neck. The enormous bail and integrated hinged medallion are about 2 3/4 inches x 2 inches at the widest point. The bail has an inside circumference of approximately 1 1/2 inches.
