This spectacular black silk tassel necklace is anchored by an exquisitely hand-carved Ivory tube that I bought in San Francisco over 25 years ago. I thought it was bone but a reputable gem dealer said ivory wasn't illegal at that time and from the color and weight he thought it was genuine ivory. This is paired with a necklace featuring, carved black jade, Bali silver, round bone and saucer beads, and antique jasper patterned beads, all gathered over the years. It is a truly dramatic and unusual piece that you won't see anywhere. 24" silk tassel 6.5"
