Napier Byzantium Collection Update!

Here is a note to add to your Napier book on page 667. This is an extraordinary Napier Byzantium necklace from the company’s 1990 fall collection. It was part of a special edition for the fall collection. The necklace features six strands of jewel-tone beads flanked by fluted bi-cone spacers. The rich tones of the beads next to the 23k gold-plate fluted spacers make this piece stand out. It was one of several necklaces designed in rich-jewel tones. This particular piece has a wonderful feel to it, and it’s rather substantial in person. It is currently available on our website.
