    The Details...

    This gilt metal necklace features a bold central design resembling a shirt collar and a curb link chain. The design is constructed from amber coloured, emerald cut rhinestones and small, round, clear rhinestones. The necklace is adjustable in length and fastens with a lobster claw clasp and an open link chain, which ends in a small, droplet shaped charm. All of the stones are faceted and claw set. The necklace measures between 46cm and 50cm in length.

    A Short History...

    This necklace is emblematic of the 'Cocktail Style' of costume jewellery being produced and worn during the late 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s. In the post-war world there was a craze for costume jewellery that was ostentatious and glitzy; featuring stones in outlandish sizes and showy colourways. This form of jewellery was referred to as 'cocktail' because it was commonly worn to a way of gathering together that was becoming increasingly popular - the cocktail party. 

    Wear it with...

    Pair this necklace with a black round neck swing dress and neutral round toe courts, for a modern day nod to the sixties.

    All that Glitters

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
