The ivory is carved into flowers with cut edges, holes and leaves. The screwback metal findings test as silver and have heavy patina. Funny the piece you turn to screw are slightly different from each other but both work the same and are stamped Sterling. The top round beads are pre-ban elephant ivory as well with a pin holding them in. These measure close to 3" long and 1/2" wide. Most likely Asian made. In good condition but they do have a few minor chips that are difficult to notice. The Ivory is old, though not cracked they are showing signs of dryness and age. The beads at the top appear with one slightly more yellow than the other. They display beautifully and still have many years of wear in them.
