The round beads are small and matched in size very well around 3.4mm. most have evident striated lines. They are strung on string with a hidden screw together clasp. At the ends of the lariat are hand carved roses, around 19mm each. Delicate looking and very feminine. What is great about this is the use of the clasp which allows you change the way you wear the necklace. Since you can take it apart you can wrap it closely around the neck for a choker, knot it or simply loop the strands over each other and allow each side to hang loosely. Has lovely light yellowing from age and use. Overall in excellent condition, authenticity guaranteed, and weighs 10.3 grams. Love this one, and so will you!
