Today I have a William Spratling first phase triple strand of beads with carved amethyst. The necklace is properly signed and with a heft of 104 grams. The first strand is 19 inches, the second is 20.5 inches and the last is 22 inches. The largest bead is 12mm and the smallest is a 5mm. The necklace is smooth to the hand as well as recently re-strung so it is ready for the next 80 years. Many call the silver beads silver pearls. That is absolutely true with this set as well because of the purity of the silver which these beads are hand made out of. A true treasure, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
