60s Chic HEAVY 3+oz Sterling Napier Choker Necklace OLD

Up for auction is a vintage necklace. Oh my, vintage sterling and choker length...HEAVY. It's gorgeous and marked for identification: NAPIER STERLING in block lettering so for sure after 1922 and prior to 1980. Looking at the clasp and style length, true choker at 14 3/8", I'd guess it mid-50's to the first part of the 1960s, if not earlier. I searched yet was unable to pinpoint an exact date of creation for this particular design. Classic curb link, actually I'd described it as 'double'-curbed with tight fitting links, of a heavy gauge at 3/8" wide, edge to edge; it weighs 3.25 ounces on a digital scale prior to packing. A older piece that is truly stunning on. It was purchased second-hand from a fellow who does estate liquidation, and specifically came from a Fremont, CA estate. Other than this I have no specific history on this necklace. The closure consists of a soldered half round wire of oval form, Pic 4, matching the ovoid clasp, flat in form with 'monkey' ear keys used to slid the catch open and closed, Pics 2 & 3. If you like, the clasp can be worn at front center and a finding slipped into the round center of the claw hook catch. GREAT PIECE!! Please refer to to photos for your take on age, design and condition. Probably close to Mid-Century about 50-60 years old, excellent robust design of heavy material, in excellent
