Emerald Art Deco Choker Necklace

The links are slightly graduated in size, ending with a decorative, concealed clasp. This jewel looked fabulous on a runway model at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the necklace length (14 1/2″) and check your neck size before purchasing this piece.
