So COOL! I can't tell you how excited I was to find this wonderful silvertone Eloxal necklace and earrings set. The necklace is sort of flexible like a snake chain but has interlocking rectangle pieces that resemble a box chain. 10mm in width by 5mm thick. The necklace measures 14" with a 3" chain extension and a shepard's hook clasp. The matching earrings measure 1" x 3/8" with brass clip on backs signed Germany. This set is a definite rare find as I've not seen anything quite like it. Made in the late 40's early 50's. In excellent condition. I really wanted to keep this, but have so many pieces already, and I certainly can't keep them all!

NOTES: Signed Germany, dates this set to pre WWII, before the separation to East and West Germany. Eloxal is an aluminum alloy used for jewelry making in the late 40's through the 1960's In the late 40's most metals were being used for the war effort so they had to find alternatives for jewelry making. Much of the German metalwork jewelry is unusual and has held up remarkably well over the years because of the use of this unique metal. Eloxal is very lightweight and will not tarnish. Because it is so lightweight, some disregard it as plastic or junk, it is not! It is highly collectible and remarkably well made. It has the added benefit of being scratch "resistant" and will continue it's pristine look for many years to come.

There is more Eloxal in the shop and I will be listing more of this wonderful metal jewelry, so please stop back often. tubbytabby.etsy.com
