Although it’s unsigned, this 1930s Mauerwerk (brickwork) necklace has been well documented as a piece by JakobBengel. It features red and black enamel on chrome with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side. This piece is from my personal collection. Scroll down to see a red and black enamel bracelet by the same maker as well as the same necklace in green and black.

Gold-plated fretwork embellished with baguette-shaped diamanté form the center of this lovely 1950s snake chain necklace by Coro. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook closure. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Corocraft, Coro's high-end line. What's interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy: "excitingly beautiful as Paris by night ... Vendome by Coro". (Vendome later became another one of the company's high-end lines.)
