    Sapphire Melon Bead Art Deco Necklace

Exactly when this piece was made is uncertain, but I associate melon beads with the Art Deco era.

    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.
