A stunning Cleopatra-worthy collar! This necklace is set in rich 18 karat yellow gold and it was made around the 1950-60s in Italy. It features graduated tubular links and disks that hang from a weaved mesh band that locks at the back with a push fit clasp, and benefits from the added security of a hinged figure 8 catch. It is masterfully crafted, resulting in a geometric design embodying a feminine Egyptian-inspired aesthetic. Rich textures abound, and it moves with the natural curves of your collar bone! This vintage necklace measures 17 and 1/2 inches total and it weighs 35 grams. It can be worn alone or styled with other vintage pieces.
