Machine Age Gold Coil Necklace
With Art Deco origins, "Machine Age" jewelry of the 1930's and 1940's found it's inspiration from the millions of mechanical parts that comprised the endless stream of machines which seemed to infiltrate daily life at every turn. From military tanks on the battlefront to automobiles on the home front, machines were everywhere. In jewelry, gears, axles, coils and springs all were re-imagined as wearable components of a piece of jewelry forged in gold rather than steel.
And, our Machine Age necklace, circa 1937-1945, is one that you will want to "spring" for! With alternating stylized "coil" links that are astutely adapted from their mechanical counterparts, the 18K gold necklace is a perfect example of this industrially influenced era. At 34" long, the collectible necklace is a sophisticated conversation piece that will enhance even the most fashionable neckline.
