With lovely soft colors of purples, burgundy, green and blue mixed with a dark silvery gray. They are rondelle shaped with well over 300 pearls, knotted every at every 10th pearl for extra security in case they ever break. There is no clasp but it is long enough to double or knot if you don't want to wear it as one long strand. Beautiful against black, greens or burgundy colors. Elegant, long and lovely.
