It was constructed of solid sterling silver and features a huge circular pendant with 13 graduating kinetic rings that move and undulate independently around the central ring.I have included its original chain as well as an incredible heavy sterling choker that is a stunning necklace in its own right! Ive never come across another one quite like it! You have versatile drama in two different looks! And the choker can be worn with other pieces as well! Pendant Dimensions: 4 3/8 diameter.
