It features curls of silver with 6 prong set, open back marquise crystal stones. The center has a leaf like design centered with spun fine silver wire. To each side dangles crystal drop briolettes. The centerpiece hangs on a twisted rope chain and has a simple spring ring clasp. The back is signed "Sterling" and has the hallmark initials of "CC". It measures 15-1/4 inches long with the lavaliere being 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches. In the very best condition. Bright and shiny without any signs of wear. Since it is so shiny and has not tarnished I believe it has either a clear coat or rhodium finish so it stays beautiful. Only one of the marquise stones looks rather dull but it is because the round plate that has the hallmark on it covers the back. I think if cleaned in a sonic cleaner it will come out brighter. But don't worry, it is very minor and mentioned for accuracy. It displays beautifully. You'll love this pretty necklace!
