Feathers are a symbol of strength and faith, especially in the face of great strife. The 2-sided feather is antiqued sterling. The strong rolo style chain joins the feather to white cultured pearls separated by sterling spacer beads. Pearls also sit at the top of the necklace next to the collar bone. This is a great piece for layering, on top of tee shirts or to dress up any outfit. All silver is sterling. The measurement around the neck to the "V" is 23" and it drops down from the "V" 6 1/2". The clasp is a spring ring.
