A fabulous and dramatic silver necklace with webbed strands which fall asymmetrically in both the front and the back, longer in the back. Circa 1920. Period illustrations frequently show necklaces designed to highlight a low neckline in both front and back. With brilliant lead crystal unfoiled stones in openback settings. The metal tests positive for sterling silver. With a spring ring clasp without a thumb tab, a common early 20th century clasp. A stunning look.

Wearable length is 14 inches. The front section drops 5 1/4 inches and the back section drops 6 1/4 inches. It can of course be worn with the sections reversed. Photos enlarged to show detail.
