This vintage Austrian necklace is by far one of the best pieces of costume I've owned. It is 17" long from end to end and is approximately 4" wide in front. It stands high on the neck when worn and is a little difficult to photo on a standard jewelry mount. It is made from brass with a Russian gilt finish, and the front is elaborately set with topaz rhinestones in oval, pear, and marquis shapes. It is in excellent condition and is signed "made in Austria" on an applied round tag.
