Size: 42", 11mm width
In fine-good condition. Beaded on what looks like silk threads, but it has turned brownish. This necklace feels really old.

Size: abt 24" length, 50 x 30mm pendant
In good condition, I'm not sure what stone the pendant is made of. It is pale green with varied translucency and bands plus a few fractures, I'm guessing Travertine / Onyx marble. There is a pale goldtone lady figure holding up some flowers glued onto the stone, some wear on the goldtone and aging on the glue (turning yellow). On the back, the bottom left corner is not as 'sharp' as the others, it could be a minor chip.The chain is in good condition with light wear. Probably 1970s.
