This is a gorgeous 18 solid gold long necklace (22") made with very fancy links, and crafted in France Circa 1960s. The links are made out of brightly polish gold and uniquely resemble elongated seeds. To be precise, these links are called "grain de café" in France, meaning coffee beans. This is a type of links which is very popular. The chain is similar to a modify version of marine and long and short chain, the long looking like coffee beans and the short a finely chiseled link uniting the two types of links. It is a quite attractive and substantial chain.
The necklace is rather long and, therefore, versatile. It is in very good estate condition and ready for wear. Alternately, it would make a wonderful gift for someone's special event, such as an anniversary or a birthday.
The necklace is fully hallmarked. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions.
