I had the Silver beads and Pendant tested and they are all Sterling Silver - great work on them. There are no markings of any kind on the piece that I can find, so decide for yourself what you believe it to be. The Pendant has cast animal figures in it Sheep Dog, perhaps a cow, with stones inlayed around and possibly a Malachite stone center as pictured. This is a beautiful piece and will be fabulous looking worn.
It is 25.5" long not counting the 2.25" heavy Sterling pendant. Its great looking and will clean if that is the way one wants to wear it. I believe this could be worn by a man or a woman.
