This is a piece I have had since I was a teenager. The next door neighbor gave it to me - told me to pick anything I wanted from this enormous heap of costume jewelry, alot of it looked ornate and Victorian. I zoned in on this one immediately as it had great colour and caught the light beautifully. It's a little more than choker length and looks very swank when worn. I'm pretty sure it is paste, although I have not done anything like put it under the microscope to look for inclusions or anything like that. The big central stone is baguette cut and the others are oval to round, multifaceted "gems". I love it even though it is not a real gem!
