Beautiful, thick faceted cut crystals with a point to the back, each crystal is set into little silver plate claw clasp all the way around with the chain links on either side, typical of French made jewelry. The necklace measures over 20" in length, each crystal is in very good condition without any chips, beautiful and bright with lots of refraction colors. The stones have not been tested. There is some wear to the silver plate consistent with the actual age.
The setting is usually what we find in Georgian jewelry with the claw tooth setting and chain links on either side, since it is open back though, it was possibly made later. It has a later added closing ring clasp stamped sterling that is not original to it but works well and I believe it is French in origin, although it is possibly English.
