Simply a strand of beads of extraordinary workmanship signed as shown AEM with the M being the heart along side an eagle 23. A superb weight of 78 grams heavy and 21 inches long these beads are wire worked in the old fashioned loops in a circle floret that if made today would cost a FORTUNE. I also have some other Etruscan wire work pieces on my site in a bracelet and a pendant fob necklace. No dents or problems of any kind exist on this beauty. The largest width is 5/8th's of an inch. Every girl needs a great set of beads,just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
