The necklace is made out of twenty-three articulated golden bars. Each bar is set with old cut diamonds. The centre section consists of three bars with four large bouton corals. From this center section twelve bars are suspended and form a grid-like, flexible pattern from which seven coral drops are dangling. The cross sections of the bars are decorated with six coral boutons. Coral drops mounted in engraved golden caps are suspended from each coral bouton. The side sections have each two suspended, slightly curved mobile bars, which are fastened to the larger bar by two round loops. They terminate in a round coral. On the tongue of the clasp are French control marks as well as a lozenge shaped master mark with the initials AD. The back of the clasp is also marked with two French eagle heads.
