This German necklace has three rows of flat-top links of diamanté. The edges of the links are engraved, and the clasp is the concealed type. The ageing of some stones doesn’t detract from the sparkle of this Machine Age piece. Schreiber & Hiller produced jewelry with many variations of this pattern. This particular design is the same as that of the sapphire and diamanté bracelet in this group.

Of all of the tank-track bracelets in the group by this maker, this piece is the only one with two colors. The long, narrow links with engraved edges are trapezoid in shape when viewed from the side. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Although some stones have aged, they don't appear cloudy in the way my camera depicts them. This piece still shines!
