Well, after seeing this piece one is really left speechless! When one thinks of Fuentes some think of Margot whom he worked for and was given molds at the end of her career. This certainly has her influence and quality, but it is marked solely in his name. The "leaf parts" holding the ball is NOT A MOLD. They are separate overlay and the base silver is heavy. Quality thru and thru and absolutely breathtaking. This is not something you see often and is collector quality. This is a choker fit and some may need an extender as it is just under 15 in. I wear a 15 in and can wear this piece because it sits up on the neck. I have also included a custom extender that will let you go to a full 18 in. or less if desired. The links are 1in. long and wide. It weighs in at approx 2.5oz. Wow, LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
