White gets the first move. More than a chess move in this case. This striking set is meant to be worn at night under runway lights with a sultry black dress. Or, any other time and wearing anything you like. It's quite pretty. End-to-end it is 22-inches long, not counting the long drop pendant which adds another three-inches to the hanging length. Each side pendant is 1.75-inches long, and the bottom pendant alone is 1.5-inches. The earrings alone are worth half the price of admission. It is made in the old-style, non-shiny, patina. Weight is 57-grams, or two-ounces. Hallmarked "AL." Always complimentary USPS Priority shipping within the U.S.
