Diamanté Vintage Bib Necklace
16 1/4" (maximum) x 1 3/8" (centerpiece)
This vintage bib necklace has a 3 ½”-wide centerpiece of tapered, curved links of channel-set diamanté and sprays of single stones. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. An adjustable bar link chain with a spring-ring clasp completes the piece. This type of adjustable clasp – instead of the North American-style J-hook – was used by many German jewelry makers in the 1950s. The design and construction of this piece remind me of the work of Schreiber & Hiller, but this necklace is unmarked. Nonetheless, I think it was German-made. A perfect jewel for a woman who looks best in cool colors! Scroll down to see some coordinating bracelets.
