This is a 14 Kt gold “Y” or lariat chain with intervals of geometric bar links. It is circa 1920's and hand made vs. machine. It has a rich yellow gold hue and measures 28 inches to the point of the "V" with another 3 inches in drop. Perhaps best of all is its versatility. The chain has a clasp (spring ring/bolt ring) at the bottom of the drop that allows you to attach and remove different pieces with ease.
