ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

1940s fashion was all about creating sleek and striking lines. Fittingly, much of the jewelry during this period followed the same trend as is evident in this ravishing Retro necklace. A lithe and lovely, gleaming serpentine chain culminates in gleaming gold arcs accented with shimmering round brilliant cut diamonds and electric cherry red rubies, creating a sweeping and dramatic curve around your neck. Its ingenious clasp will have everyone wondering how you put it on. A chic and fabulous jewel of beauty and intrigue. Total diamond weight - 1.10 carats, total ruby weight 1.00 carat. Hand fabricated in18K white gold and 14K yellow gold, it measures 16 1/2 inches.

About Retro Jewelry

Hollywood glam got creative during the war era, when strategic factors forced jewelers to do without certain materials. Rather than scale back, they took the streamlined shapes of the Art Deco and went big, bold, and gold with them! Retro power pieces segued from the Jazz Age to the Fabulous Fifties, creating many motifs of vintage jewelry along the way.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
