The Details...

This necklace features triangular, multi-faceted citrine crystals along its length. The centre of the necklace is detailed with multi-faceted, oval shaped, citrine crystal drops. All of the crystals are bezel set and they are set in and linked together with gilded metal. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring and measures 36cm in length. 

A Short History...

Glass and crystal have been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. Easily accessible materials that can be formed into any shape. They were heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this necklace, because they could meet the need for affordable jewellery after the World War One and the Great Depression. They could also be pressed into the evocative geometric shapes we associate with Art Deco design. 

Wear it With...

Pair this necklace with a grey, round neck knit for an instantly chic look.
