This is a really nice mix of four- and seven layer chevrons. The three 6-layer egg-shaped chevrons are lovely examples of this type of bead and are in immaculate condition. The rest of the chevrons are barrel-style beads with four layers, although there are a few six-layer beads mixed in.
The necklace measures 30 inches long. The center bead measures 49 mm long by 30 mm in diameter. The barrel beads that make up the majority of the strand measure about 20 mm in diameter. They are also in very good shape, but show a little more wear than the center beads. The smallest barrels measure 14 - 16 mm in diameter.
An all around great classy strand of these famous beads.
