This is a faux pearl choker necklace with a lovely cerise red glass stone clasp. Choker necklaces are harder to wear than collar necklaces. The pictures of Queen Mary - with her choker neckles - are amazing - she certainly was able to wear them. (See my Facebook Page - Gillian Horsup Vintage Jewellery - and there is a link to an article written about her - with pictures!). Full details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - reference 2519 B111/27 - price £75. I have lots of faux pearl necklaces in my shop - but not many chokers.
