Gold wire links with 29 small glass beads at intervals. One end of the clasp a cylinder of open filigree work, which is built up of two rings of roundels filled with five-petaled rosettes. Collars of filigree, apparently ancient, are at either side of the roundel zone. The other end has a simple hook (probably modern, as well as the ends of the cylinder).
