A Fabulous Gold Torque Necklace by Ilias Lalaounis

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Inspired by a 500 BC original which would have graced the neck of a Grecian Princess.

The Gold colour is rich and really catches the eye and I can understand why Lalaounis was called "the Greek Ambassador of Gold". On the reverse is a small plaque which is stamped GREECE 750 and with the registered Lalaounis trade mark. The Torque measures 1 4/16 inch at its widest part, graduating back to 8/16 in. A magnificent piece of Gold Work

Greek circa 1970
