The Details...

A stylish design from Schreiber and Hiller - this collar necklace is made up of rhodium plated links forming a tank track design. The links are channel-set with round, multi-faceted, clear, paste stones. The necklace fastens with a concealed box clasp and has an additional safety clasp too. The necklace is 42cm in length.

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. This necklace is certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - its bold geometry, encrusted with bright rhinestones for a new feminine look and movement.
