You are looking at a vintage 1970's, never been worn, beaded collar shawl in black faux pearls, black bugle beads, round tiny beads, and oval beads. Each strand of bugle beads is 3" long. The main body is made of 100% pure silk and has extra beads attached in an envelope. It is made by "Contessa." It measures 11 1/4" from the neckline to the tip of the bottom bead point. No missing beads. (Dress in photos not included).
The shawl collar is high quality beading --- not cheap dime store neckwear. Perfect item to dress up your wardrobe. It can be worn front or back, or tied in front with the long beaded ties. It would look smashing over that little black dress and especially stunning with a strapless gown. I never had to right occasion to wear it. So, I'm listing it for the right person who can use and enjoy it.
