This peculiar necklace is made by seventeen silver mounted pieces hinged together. There are one hundred and eleven topazes, twenty amethysts while the ribbons, the flowers and the bows are outlined by round zircons. The necklace’s various pieces could be sewed to the bodice of a dress and the central pendent could be worn as a brooch.
