Simply stunning and very dimensional collar or bib necklace in colorless Lucite strung on monofilament. With a metal hook and extender chain of metal wired Lucite beads. Circa 1970, in the style of Coppola e Toppo. Possibly Italian. Small beads alternating with large beads are strung in raised arches. Very large faceted drops alternate with large bead drops. The design is very complex and dimensional and the photos do not do justice.

Wearable length is 16 inches. 3 1/2 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches deep. Excellent condition. There was originally one more large drop at each clasp end of the necklace; this is not noticeable since it is at the back and is still symmetrical. Display form is lifesize. Photos enlarged to show detail.
