Vintage 1950s-1960s two rib heavy link necklace. The necklace may be worn as a single strand or doubled for a more dramatic look.
This is part of The Arc's Vintage & Estate Collection currently featuring pieces of an iconic period in costume jewelry design. On the heels of WW II, many of the US jewelry manufacturers were headed by emigres fleeing Europe who were formerly apprentices at some of the greatest jewelry houses in Europe.
The classic beauty, unique style, and distinct craftsmanship was made for durability, to be passed on to the next generation. The true definition of chic, where all of the hallmarks of incredible design and workmanship at a fraction of the cost allowed for women of discerning taste to adorn themselves more freely as well as taking these beauties with them on their travels.
Due to the gentle and unique nature, all vintage items are final sale.
