1940s aluminum pendant necklace / 40s vintage long silver medallion with Native symbols

Description

1940s aluminum necklace, with large medallion pendant. The aluminum has been etched with Native symbols which were then colored black. The pendant is slightly domed and hung from a long silver-tone rope chain. The pendant is original from the 40s, during war time, but it was hung on the chain (which is not aluminum, it's silver-tone base metal) during a later decade. It's incredibly lightweight.

Aluminum jewelry is actually quite rare. In the 40s during WWII aluminum was the most abundant metal after all others were being used up for war efforts, so for a short time in history objects were being made of this readily available material. Aluminum won't tarnish or rust, it's very lightweight and pliable, and therefore was an excellent metal for creating large pieces of fashion jewelry. Although there is an abundance of hammered aluminum platters and trays, for example, the jewelry is much harder to come by.


Condition: Almost excellent, with a couple tiny chips in the black paint
Measurements: 24" chain length / 2 3/4"
Markings: None
