Red Galalith cylindrical beads accent the chrome chain links.  This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel. I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner. Scroll down to see the perfect Bengel earrings to wear with this necklace.

    Red & Black Galalith 1930s Jakob Bengel Earrings

    , ,

    These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome settings envelope the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.
