Length is 16 1/4 inches, the chunky nature of this necklace makes it fit almost like a choker, right at the base of the neck with a small/med neck or around the bottom of the neck with a larger neck. Diameter is about 1/4 of an inch.
The construction is wonderful, very slinky and supple, no stiffness. Minimal wear to the surface and slight loss of finish only on the back of the clasp. This piece has been well cared for over the years.
Circa 1960, mod and fabulous. These necklaces became popular after the 1963 film, Cleopatra, staring Elizabeth Taylor.
Super glamorous, great for a night out but could be worn during the day for work.
