Amethyst wedding statement necklace made with 18 x 12mm silver rhinestone oval beads. On the shorter strand I used hand cut faceted purple amethyst rondelles about 12 x 5mm each. Each bead is different in shape due to the hand cutting and these beads are AAA+++ quality. They are separated by 8mm silver plated stardust beads. On the longer strand I used 25mm cape amethyst puffed ovals separated with the 18mm silver rhinestone beads. This necklace has so much sparkle it is amazing. The shortest strand is 16 inches and the longer strand is 19 inches and it is finished with textured large oval link bright silver color chain and a Tibetan silver 'S' clasp. You could wear it a little shorter by clipping anywhere on the chain. If you need it a little longer, just email me. This heavy necklace is not for the faint at heart, it is very dramatic
