Back in the late 1970s or early 1980s when this necklace was made, and earlier designs as well, you could go into a department store a buy a twisted gold rope necklace that was fine quality gold plating. Vintage gold-plated necklaces will last many, many decades. New cheaply made gold plated necklaces show gold wear the first week you wear them!
This twisted fat rope design is thickly gold plated in two shades (each strand) of light-yellow gold and glistening rose gold. Because the plating is thick, the necklace looks like new but it is at least 27 years old. The necklace is 31 1/2" or 80 cm long and is finished with a gold-plated spring clasp. The twisted gold mesh is 1/4" or 8-9 mm wide.
The necklace is not signed and was probably not imported and was made in the US. In pristine clean like new condition, the rope has no imperfections or flaws. There is no gold wear and no damage to the mesh anywhere.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation necklace box.
