Sumptuous six strand beaded necklace with graduated dark gray labradorite beads with iridescent flashes of blue and green, hammered silver beads, and a carved horn clasp with hammered and worked silver overlay decoration. Probably Scandinavian, with the look of a Monies piece. With a complex asymmetrical design, and can be worn several different ways. The silver tests positive for sterling using jeweler's acid. A very wearable and neutral statement piece. Wearable length is 19 inches. About 1 3/4 inches wide/thick. The clasp is 7/8 inch wide. The beads range from 5 mm to 8 mm in diameter. Excellent condition. Photos enlarged to show detail.
