Crystal & Sterling Chicklet-Style Art Deco Necklace
17 1/2" x 1/2"
Late 1940s to early 1950s?
Faceted clear crystal chicklets in sterling silver frames set at an angle give this Art Deco necklace a lot of class. The positioning of the stones adds to the sparkle and makes this piece unique. This necklace closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp; its style makes me think this piece was produced in Japan in the late 1940s to early 1950s, one of the Art Deco Revival eras. After the war, Japan produced a lot of high-quality costume jewelry that was exported. I have chicklet-style earrings that coordinate beautifully with this necklace – scroll down to take a look.
