Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Necklaces, 1930s JewelryThis 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.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Necklaces, 1930s JewelryWith this vintage link necklace from the 1930s, the maker used curved links of diamanté in a tank-track pattern as the centerpiece. The jeweled links have rhodium-plated backs. A link-and-bar chain with a spring-ring clasp complete this Machine Age piece. Because this necklace was in my personal collection, I had it shortened. Its purchase includes four additional links, which are each about one-half-inch long.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Necklaces, 1930s JewelryA beautiful example of Machine Age design that you will love. This vintage black Bakelite necklace features six curved links set with diamanté that alternate with Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed.
