Fabulous unusual glass beaded necklace with multi strands of purple, dark blue, pale lavender glass beads, and silvertone metal beads, with a huge dark brass mounted asymmetrical center element with giant softly faceted and smooth cabochon glass stones and a prong set brilliant purple prong set glass drop. It can be worn as a dog collar with the center as the clasp, or longer as shown, with the center as a pendant. Circa 1970, from the same estate as the Egyptian collar I am listing. The center element hooks into a loop in the middle of the glass beaded strands. Wearable length as a choker is 14 1/2 inches. The center element is 3 7/8 inches long. Worn long the length is about 26 inches. Excellent condition. Darkening of the brass does not show when worn. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
