What a fantastic, exotic bohemian look! This is a massive, stunning piece! Done in traditional style, the long silver dangles hang from an ornate silver metal and inlaid glass neckpiece that is highly decorative. The detail work of the choker section is just amazing. Please take a close look at it. The jeweled accents are done in a flower shaped pattern. They centers are inlaid with ruby red or cobalt blue glass. Accent pieces are set into the tips of the flowers in shades of red, green and orange. Each jeweled piece that decorates the choker section has additional dangles hanging down. These are also accented with coordinating glass jewels and chained ball dangles. This closes with the traditional black ties, so it is adjustable to your neck. This is black cotton lined so that it is comfortable on your neck. Both this piece and the ties appear to be a newer addition. Little white and red glass beads are sewn into the top. Now look at all of those dangles! These have movement that creates a great soft jingling sound when you move. Excellent for a statement piece every day or for a costume piece.
