This snake chain necklace from Germany has a curved centerpiece with a Machine Age-look. The white-metal links with channel-set stones are separated by trios of flat-metal links. All are connected with flat disks at the top and bottom (probably to cover a connecting chain). At each end is a triangle-shaped element formed by two long and one short link with channel-set stones. This piece closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although I had always associated snake chains with the 1940s, I just learned that they were first introduced in 1850. This necklace has a maker’s mark, but I have been unable to identify the company. Although this necklace was made for a slim neck (the length is 14 1/2″), you could add a chain extender if needed. The absence of an adjustable closure makes me think this piece was made before the 1950s.

    Diamanté German Flexible Bracelet

    , ,

    This German flexible bracelet features curved, rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. Its design and construction remind me of other pieces made in Germany in the 1930s and 1950. A distinctive element of this one is the use of a small disk between each link. This bracelet is wider and longer than most I’ve seen from these decades. Although this piece has a maker’s mark, I cannot identify the company. Scroll down to see a necklace by the same maker as well as an unsigned one with the same construction.
