Each round disc is 1 1/2 inches in diameter making for a very dramatic and imposing necklace. It is 23 1/2 inches in length.
The necklace was made in the 1940's. The work of Fred Davis is included in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and has been written about extensively by scholar Penny Morrill in her books about Mexican silver.
