  • 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. Scroll down to see this brooch as well as a gold flexible bracelet by another maker.

    Turquoise Bead & Silver Chain Long Necklace

    , ,
    This long turquoise bead necklace features round and tubular-shaped glass beads in various sizes connected with silver-tone chain. Today we’d call this piece a station necklace. When I bought it for my personal collection, I had my expert jeweler add the spring-ring clasp. The photos show this 47” piece worn doubled; if you have a slim neck, you could also wear it tripled!

    Yellow Glass Bead & Caramel Disk French Necklace

    , ,
    This substantial French Art Deco necklace boasts large yellow-glass beads with swirls. In between the beads are sets of two caramel-colored glass disks, one teal-glass disk, and then another pair of caramel ones. The color combination is unusual, striking, and extremely versatile. This necklace, which closes with a screw-barrel clasp, has been restrung on chain by my expert jeweler. The clasp can be a bit tricky, but it works fine. This piece was part of my personal collection. A beautiful necklace for a woman who looks best in warm colors.
