It has matte white baroque pearls with filigree brass caps and fancy beads with a large tassel centerpiece. It also has pretty aurora borealis crystals for shine and sparkle. All are separated with gold seed beads. Simple spring ring clasp, pearls are not chipped or peeling, just some patina to the brass, overall beautiful and impressive due to the size and length. All original, not a reproduction. Necklace total length is 26 inches long with an additional 3 1/4 inches with the length of the tassel.
