Description After the disruption in the economy in the late 18th century there arose in France a fashion for jewelry rendered in non-precious metals. This neoclassical gilded copper necklace is composed of a chain of flat wire links with subordinate loops, from which hang pendants in the form of spheres with rounded, arrowhead drops.
