Retro 18k Solid Gold Geometric Link Necklace, Circa 1940
This 1940s Retro style necklace is utter perfection! It's the kind of necklace you spend years hunting for. At least I know I have!
It has such a simple geometric design that is extremely retro but with a very contemporary appeal. The way light reflects off of the surface of the three-dimensional diamond and spherical shapes gives the necklace a lively, glowing quality. The construction is very solid with a nice fluid movement. The overall length is 16-1/2" which will drape flatteringly just below the collarbone. There are eleven fixed drops of graduated lengths. The smallest outer drops extend 3/16" below their corresponding links. The center drop extends 3/4" below the link it is attached to. The final link has a series of hallmarks..."69VI", "750", and "FOT". The European "750" mark indicates 18k gold and an acid test confirmed that. The simple spring ring clasp is also 18k. Honestly, this is the ideal necklace! You can easily wear it on a daily basis. But it is also such a beautiful, understated piece of fine jewelry that you may choose to wear it only for special occasions. Either way, it's a smart addition to any stylish woman's jewelry collection!
