    , ,
    This gold-filled circle brooch is formed by a series of rings in different designs. The widest is convex and made of gold-mesh, with an overlay of gold leaves and vines along with tiny pink-topaz glass stones. A narrow ring of aquamarine-glass baguettes provides further embellishment. At the top is an elaborate horizontal bow with three loops on each side and in the center. This 1940s brooch by Walter Lampl has a roll-over safety clasp and a loop at the top and bottom to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant.

    Sterling 1940s Flexible Choker by Walter Lampl

    , ,
    This sterling silver flexible choker by Walter Lampl was the height of style in the mid- to late-1940s. The simplicity of this piece makes it wearable with almost anything. This well-constructed necklace closes with a concealed clasp. This choker was made for a slim neck, even though the construction allows for a bit of stretch. Please note the length (14 1/2"), and measure your neck before making this purchase. This necklace was advertised in the May 1947 issue of The Jewelers' Circular - Keystone (a trade publication); the gold-filled and sterling silver versions each cost $4.50, at a time when the average family income in the U.S. about $50/week. I wrote a blog post about two stars who wore this style of necklace in 1940s films – read it here. Cate Blanchett wore a gold version in the 2015 movie Carol. Scroll down to see a gold flexible bracelet by another maker.
