CHOKER STYLE VINTAGE NECKLACE - signed - Made in Germany - 1940's - aluminium - classic style

This unusual vintage necklace was made in Germany after the country was divided in the 1940's, being stamped 'Western Germany' on the clasp. It is made from aluminium alloy which was developed in Germany at the time. Because the metal is an alloy the necklace is a subtle gold tone colour and is fantastically lightweight to wear.

It is a most interesting design......having a central chainlink strip with flattened pieces of metal splaying from each link which taper in size towards the clasp, giving the necklace a beautiful flow. Each splayed strip has a pattern printed on one end of it and these are placed in an alternate order to give a plain/pattern effect. The necklace has a wonderful fluidity due to its clever chain-link design which means it sits beautifully on your neck. It can be worn in two ways - as a choker or at collar level.

The necklace has a large ringed extension chain with a simple hook which makes it very easy to attach.

Being aluminium means it is bright, shiny and tarnish proof and although it may look heavy in style, it's not and is comfortable and lightweight to wear.

This piece is so stylish and looks stunning when worn. It would make a wonderful present for someone who loves 1940's jewellery.
