Beautiful French necklace with amazing huge green melon shaped beads, small red glass spacer beads, and brilliant rhinestone rondelles held in dark brasstone
metal. Possibly an early Chanel. It has been professionally restrung. There are probably one or more green beads missing, as they are not exactly perfectly
graduated, however, this is not extremely noticeable when worn. There are also rhinestones missing from some of the rondelles; these have been strung at the
back. The clasp, which probably is not original but is as found, is marked 9C, for 9 karat gold. The beads are in excellent undamaged condition, other issues as
described. Price significantly adjusted to reflect these small imperfections. 21 1/2 inches wearable length. The largest bead is 7/8 inch or 23 mm. Display form
is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
