This pearl and rhinestone collar is intricately made from a crocheted gold thread mesh with different size pearls woven into its design. A row of rhinestones embellish the top. Drips of pearl drops adorn the bottom which technically would be the back of the collar.The piece measures 15″ (not including the tie which measures 8″ on each side) and is 2 1/2″ at its widest point. Typically worn as a collar to a sweater or dress, today vintage collars can adorn an outfit as a necklace. The tie of the collar is even finished with a circle of five pearls at each end. Very lovely. Excellent condition.
