The necklace is stamped on the back with the maker's mark for Grosse of
Germany as well as 750/18k and what is possibly the date of the piece, 1972,

earrings also have the Grosse maker's mark and this date on the back. The
earrings are marked 18k/750 as well as the G initial Grosse maker's mark on the
little Y-form that connects the omega backs to the earrings, indicating that

measures about 16 1/2 inches long, not including the tongue of the clasp which

estimate that 50 grams of this weight is gold.
