It features four strands of rolo chains, which create an elegant draping look along the length of the choker. The chains are capped at each end by stunning hand-formed filigree scrolling leaf and vine swirls that keep the chains separated. These scrolling vine patterns are repeated as spacer links partway along the choker, which allow the chains to arc pleasingly towards the central pendant. The pendant features a lovely rounded square frame with curving, open organic shapes that makes this necklace light and easy to wear. Held inside the frame is an oval disc with recessed striated details, which have been oxidized, creating a striking contrast against the bright silver surrounding it. In the center of the disc is a molded raised bezel that holds a deep, blood red Bohemian garnet. The Bohemian garnet has been rose cut, and the facets glitter darkly. The necklace is adjustable, and is meant to sit lightly at the base of the throat for a draped scalloped look, or fastened tightly higher up on the neck for more striking choker look. Ornate and elegantly gothic, this multi-strand choker has a deep, dark sophistication that will make a statement at any occasion. Damage: Age appropriate wear. *Display items do not come with purchase, item only, unless otherwise noted.* The HistoryThis beautiful piece comes from the Art Deco Era! The Art Deco Era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" Era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period.During the Art Deco Period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand.835 silver, also called Coin Silver, is made out of silver coins used in European countries such as Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Scandinavian countries. During this time period, it was easier for jeweler and silversmiths to use coins that were already guaranteed at a certain purity, than using another form of silver and having to guess at the purity level. Filigree metal working has been around for thousands of years, however was perfected by the Phoenicians and Etruscan civilizations. It involves stamping out a design in your metal and hand bending and twirling until your design in formed, it is considered one of the most difficult metal working processes.Bohemian Garnets were mined starting in the 16th century in the Bohemian Hills of Czechoslovakia. During the Victorian and Art Deco eras, this type of garnet reached a height of popularity. There are no known mines in existence which has made the remaining stones highly coveted. Bohemian Garnets features gorgeous red hues. Domestic US: All items ship within one business day of receiving payment.
