Go for Gold

Elegant vintage gold choker, around 1990

Since time immemorial, the unmistakable brilliance of gold has captivated people. The precious metal in the colour of the sun has been a coveted symbol of power and wealth in all cultures and throughout the centuries. This piece of jewellery also illustrates the unbroken charm of gold. This piece of jewellery from the last years of the last millennium is made of 14-carat yellow gold. It presents itself as a flattened necklace with a slight curve. The links are polished to a shine and are set so close together that the hoop clings to the neck in a flexible yet firm manner. Excitingly constructed and yet simple and noble, it is now more wearable than ever!

The 1920s brought a new style to the world of jewellery with Art Deco: geometric abstractions, noble materials and luxurious fittings were sought after and supplied by goldsmiths in Paris, London and Vienna as well as by their colleagues in Berlin and overseas. The longer and wider the style spread, the more evolved the forms became. In Paris and the USA, a special style emerged in the years after 1930, which is called "retro" jewellery in the USA: The shapes became stronger, more corpulent, and the jewellery even more splendid. Fashion now preferred pieces of jewellery made of yellow or red gold to those made of platinum or white gold, and coloured stones replaced diamonds in their popularity. The surfaces were fanned out geometrically and the jewels were conceived almost like cubist architectures.
