Stunning signed Oscar de la Renta couture necklace. This is not a necklace you will see again. The large coral-orange lucite flowers in the front of the necklace have tiny rows of crystal rhinestones trailing down the petals. The brushed gold-plated links end in an extender that allows it to be easily adjusted. I tried this on with a plain black dress and it is dazzling. The piece has a tag and is marked on the back, Oscar de la Renta, Made in USA. Excellent Condition.
Measurements: 20 inches including extender x 2.5 inches in the front
