Bezel-set emerald-cut blue glass stones adorn the chain of this chromium necklace. The chain splits into four rectangular links, from which a geometric pendant is suspended. The pendant is composed of a central vertical blue glass stone flanked by two horizontal stones. Below the stones, chromium squares form a stepped pattern. Further dangling from the pendant is another vertical blue glass stone.
