This is a 12 chain Festoon Necklace that has an unusual dagger clasp in the front of the necklace. The chains are soft and the entire necklace is very flexible and comfortable to wear. I love novelty pieces and this one is a charmer. The dagger is on a chain so you don’t have to worry about losing it. The chain is 16” long and the center chains fall about 4” in depth.
