Description

■■ Description ■■
This slim Saturn Chain link style necklace is marked “NAPIER ®” on an extension that is attached to the necklace. The ® was put into place with the Trademark Act of 1946, so we know this piece came out after that. Napier is a company that was in business for many years as well as had been sold and its name was changed several times before it officially became NAPIER in 1922. The company looks to have closed in 1999, but the name was still kept by the owning company for many years. There is talk that Liz Claiborne purchased the Napier name in 2000, however, we were unable to confirm this. One of the advertisements used by Napier was, “Now You're Dressed”.
• Because of the bar that this piece is signed on, even though the necklace is designed to be 16.5 inches long, it can easily be clasped at the shorter end of the name plate, shortening the necklace down to 16 inches. This might only be an adjustment of a half an inch, but sometimes and with some tops, that makes all the difference in the world. This is not a true Saturn chain style chain link. But a 2mm beautiful twisting version or play on that style, lots of angles for light to catch and play with, creating a very lovely piece in something slim and classy. The chain link has an almost twisted herringbone look, however, it is not a true herringbone. The beads look like they are floating on the chain and measure 3.4mm, with their shiny surface giving more to the light play of this piece. Delicate looking and classically beautiful, great for every day, lovely enough for that special event!


* Side Note * The dark wood form this necklace is displayed on, measures roughly 12 inches tall by 6 inches wide at the shoulder. If the necklace was shortened in any of the photos, we also tried to show one picture with the necklace on the form, at full length.

FAQs

►Most important◄ Double check your profile address is correct! The software limits us on your street address to only 35 characters.
►Remember all pieces are vintage, so the condition grade, is a Vintage Grade. They could and probably will show age / wear; minor scratches, yellowing, darkening, rhinestone cloudiness, rounded corner / edges, minor chipping, pealing / flaking of metal, replaced earring backs or repairs. We try to list anything minor that will detract from the intended design while being worn, and of course anything major. We strive to take photos of the bad. Some of the photos are very close up, potentially giving an almost exaggerated look. Also, the slightest of patina can potentially show up as bright green in photos.
• If a multi item order forces you to an unwanted shipping upgrade, add a note to your order - e.g. "First Class Shipping Please". If you do not, we will NOT hold up the order to check. It will be processed as fast as we can and shipped priority with no refund.
• This sometimes happens depending on weight or number of pieces because we have to include weight of the padded envelope and packaging during setup of each piece. On multi item orders, this can add up, pushing you into the next weight class.
• For all multi item orders not marked priority =
when we print your shipping label, we adjust the weight to the correct amount, determine most cost effective option and refund any amount that was overcharged.
