The stones in this set are spectacular! Heavily faceted, Alexandrite CZ's, they are triangular in shape and graduate in size to conform to a most unique design... centipedes! Tiny clear and lavender stones accent the legs, and a black application has been added to the areas where the lavender stones are set giving a wonderful contrast to the rest of the silver which is sterling. It is stamped 925 alongside an oval hallmark with the number 77 inside of it. Each piece is also articulated so the centipedes have movement as well. No idea who manufactured this but it's wildly unique and beautifully made.
I added photos of the stones in warm and cool light which show their change in color from cool purple to a warm pinkish purple. Either way, the CZ's in both shades are stunning.
Excellent pre-owned condition
