This German Machine Age necklace has as its centerpiece a row of three arrow-shaped black Galalith plaques covered with chrome triangle panels, with a fourth plaque as a drop and a red Galalith cylindrical bead on both sides. The chain links and findings are chrome. This piece reminds me of the work of JakobBengel. I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner.

This 1920s-1930s Art Deco necklace of square-cut faceted amethyst glass stones set in silver-tone frames with a delicate chain is probably sterling, but it is unmarked.

This necklace looks lovely with several of my Art Deco amethyst earrings and bracelets – scroll down to take a look.
This late-1950s gold-plated metal and glass bead pineapple bib necklace illustrates a typical Carnegie theme — flora — with a clever combination of materials.
