Description

In the last third of the 19th century, forward-thinking jewellery makers in Britain were keen to break with traditional patterns: Historically inspired pieces appeared too crowded, too many ornaments and colours weighed down on the designs. In the course of this endeavour, numerous pieces of silver jewellery in particular were created. Their value was no longer traditionally derived from the number and size of sparkling diamonds and coloured stones, but solely from their original design. This also explains the simple, modern-looking design of this silver necklace. Flattened links are connected to each other by flat, oval rings. The surfaces of the silver, which is sometimes curved and sometimes flat, are the only source of attractive light reflections, which, along with the geometric shapes, are the ornamentation of the necklace. The necklace, which is close to the neck, is equipped with a particularly large clasp, typical of the time. Worn in front, it serves as a hanger for a matching silver medallion in the style of the Aesthetic Movement. Worn at the nape of the neck, the necklace becomes a versatile piece of jewellery on its own.
