My inner voice shouted at me to go look in the thrift shops today. In the first shop, I looked through all the jewelry (rubbish) that was hanging in the display cabinets. I went upstairs and looked around at all the other stuff on offer, then came back down for another look at the jewelry. This necklace was hanging behind the counter with other costume jewelry, already with a price tag. Since I am known in the shop, I can look behind the counter at the jewelry. This chain was the last thing I looked at - it had a big red copper and enamel cross hanging from it and was priced at 2,95 Euro. (The cross by itself would have been 95 Euro cents.) I saw the hallmark stamps.
11/3/2016: Had it weighed for scrap value: $330.00+....however, this will not be scrapped or sold! :-))))
Total length is 80 cm or 31 inches.
I plunked down my money and sailed happily out of the shop!
Thanks for stopping!
