This is one awsome fruit salad necklace. First I want to draw your attention to the fine stones knotted in the silk cord, I have tested these and most are tourmaline, and some banded agate of every color, some of the fruit is also carved stones, with the most careful attention paid to every detail, as you can see from the pictures. this is all tied on a brilliant pink silk cord with a brass catch, everything is orginal on this necklace. The fruit salad section alone is 7" long, t is 7" of cord on each side, so the entire necklace is 21" long. Each and every piece is hand made, and I have no idea of the orgin of this, part of an estate that was brought to me. I do know t aren't any more like this one, and this will look glorious on white this summer for lunch with the girls, pair this with small gold drop earrings, and they will claw you to pieces to get this. If I were going to keep this, I would take it to the jewler and have him put some 8mm 14kt gold beads on it spaced and t This is paypal only, item must be paid in 48 hours after auction close, to pay, log on to your paypal account, click the send money tab, fill in the receipent as S&H is 3.50 on this including insurance, since I am treating this like fine jewelry.
