A stunning Kieselstein-Cord sterling silver woven double crocodile necklace. This crocodile necklace weighs 77 grams or approximately 2 troy ounces, and is in great vintage condition.

Kieselstein-Cord's crocodile designs were most iconic during the mid-nineties. His crocodile work was so well considered that his matching Alligator Trophy bag was exhibited in the Met Museum in New York and the Louvre in Paris. This necklace is a bold fashion item, perfect for a man or a woman. The necklace feels great when worn, is seductive with its sinuous lines and has a great contemporary design.
