This fab necklace has three goldtone round snake chains accented with both smooth beads and some that have a "nugget" texture. Quite a wonderful contract of textures, and the ones with a nugget texture sparkle like crazy. The shortest strand is 24" and the longest one is 30" long. This is a necklace that cannot just be thrown into a jewelry box, or it will tangle fairly easily. But worth the extra care, as it is so beautiful! It is not signed, but is designer quality. It will be shipped in a gift box.
