The Gold Rush

High quality vintage gold necklace from the 1950s

When, after the long years of war, food shortages, currency reform and the first reconstruction, the lust for life also returned to German cities and parlors, when the economic miracle made possible a first new prosperity in the centers of industry and commerce, the art of jewelry design also awoke to new life after many years of a dreamless sleep. After the years of privation during the war, the economic miracle brought new wealth and allowed the fulfilment of these luxurious needs. This solid gold necklace bears witness to this. It originates from this time of regained joie de vivre in Germany. Crafted of heavy 14-karat yellow gold, the necklace features the particularly decorative Garibaldi pattern, with links that thicken toward the center. Gold beads on either side add beautiful detail to the intertwining pattern. A box clasp with a safety slot makes the necklace wearable without fear of losing it.
