Mid Century Modern - the big collar necklace combines great Italian design with sleek manufacture and workmanship. Strong tones of Arts and Crafts - the desire to show hand workmanship. Curving, scrolling gold links are joined by a system of 'pegs and dowels' with globular studs threaded through piercings at either end of each link. The protruding round pegs are echoed in reverse by series of graduated circles punched in the gold plates. Strong movement. Combined parts making a novel whole. Very powerful, yet delicate, this necklace works on many levels.

Marks: the clasp is stamped 585 for 14k yellow gold. A pair of plates on the back read 14K ITALY and RA. with a logo that looks like a swirling sun, respectively.

Condition: Good, Original condition with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged photos for details. Do not hesitate to ask questions, which we will do our best to answer.
