    This two-strand, gold-filled snake chain necklace is the epitome of mid- to late-1940s style. At that time, snake chains were made into necklaces, bracelets, key chains, brooches, and watchbands.

    Green Bead 2-Strand French Necklace

    , ,
    This green glass bead necklace is just gorgeous! Two strands of graduated beads in a soft-green with swirls of color form this French 1950s jewel. I think it was made by Louis Rousselet. (As you may know, few of his pieces were signed directly on the jewelry – instead, a paper hang tag was used.) The clasp, which is the type he typically used, is topped with his well-known button-shaped bead. This necklace from my personal collection was recently professionally restrung. A timeless addition to your jewelry wardrobe.

    This sautoir necklace and earrings set is a stunning Art Deco-style creation made with faux grey and white pearls for Coco Chanel’s boutique in 1948-1952.

The necklace broke when I wore it to my favorite nephew’s wedding. When I had it professionally restrung at a slightly shorter length, my jeweler created a bracelet. I'm including it with the purchase of this fabulous set.

    Lapis Bead Necklace with Chrome

    , ,
    This lapis bead necklace in a 1930s German Machine Age design was probably made by Jakob Bengel. It has glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. (This maker’s jewelry was never signed.) This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this jewel.

Silver-mesh chain accented with two round faux pearls on each side complete the piece. The mesh between one side pearl and the clasp has very minor fraying. The photos of the center make the filigree caps appear much warmer than they actually are. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, was made for a slim neck. Please note the necklace length (14 3/4″) and check your neck size before purchasing this lovely piece. The construction does allow for a chain extender.

    The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of heart-shaped blossoms. Their gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. The ear clips are single hearts. The brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8") was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.

Exactly when this piece was made is uncertain, but I associate glass beads molded in the shape of melons with the Art Deco era. This strand of uniformly-sized beads was professionally restrung with knots by my expert jeweler after these photos were taken. It closes with a filigree, gold-tone concealed clasp.

  • Sterling silver choker, 1940s, by Walter Lampl
    Walter Lampl sterling silver flexible choker
    $ 295

    Sterling Silver Choker by Walter Lampl

    , ,
    This sterling silver 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). 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. After seeing the 2019 Oscars, I was inspired by Amy Adams' red-carpet look to add a Marcel Boucher brooch to this necklace, as shown in the last photo.
