You cannot imagine how Wow this piece is. The beads are 3" around at the bottom and the drop on the necklace is 15". Opened the piece is 30" long. It is so pretty and the color is Great!! They are a true Chocolate brown. No damage of any kind. This is the neatest piece I have found in a long time. It is truly a Great Mid Century piece of Jewelry. A really nice piece and quality. I do not see a makers mark.
