The Details...

This gilt metal necklace features multi-faceted green mirror glass panels. They are molded into four leaf clover shapes and claw set. The necklace features a delicate open link chain and a bolt ring fastening. The bolt ring is stamped 'CZECHOSLOVAKIA' and the necklace measures 40cm. 

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this set, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great War and the Depression. This necklace features highly sought after mirror glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded in different shapes with a silvered backing.  

Wear it With...

This necklace is perfect for evening wear -  it would look beautiful with a little black dress. It would add a pop of colour to casual looks too - pair with a jewelcoloured silk shirt.
