This lovely substantial vintage Mauritanian metal bridal necklace has loads of beads and bead caps to work with.
Small granulated beads (90) measure 3-4mm each. Diamond shaped focal beads (6) measured 14.7mm wide and 18.5mm tall (approximately). Main focal pendant measures 32x32mm. 28 bead caps. Nice black glass beads too. Approximately 20 inches of beads before pendant.
This necklace was not designed by Rita.
It is really unusual in its use of metal and in the detail and intricate design of each bead. A wonderful find!
