Spectacular Ed Wiener Modernist Gold Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Circa 1970s, 18k, Ed Wiener, New York City. Exquisitely made by modernist master goldsmith and visionary, Ed Wiener, this gorgeous statement necklace features contoured, overlapping reticulated eighteen-karat gold plates. Impeccably stunning in their ragged imperfection, the contrasting textures and finishes create visual excitement and perfectly juxtapose the chic all-gold look. Brilliant in design and exceptional in execution, this one-of-a-kind necklace is in excellent condition. Noted: This necklace is a smaller size. Excellent condition.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "From his Greenwich Village digs in the late thirties to his uptown shop in the eighties, there was a reason New Yorkers kept Ed Wiener in business for over 5 decades. They know the real deal when they see it!"

Personal Impression: "From his gallery on 5th Avenue during the eighties, Ed Wiener did the unexpected by designing in a radically different aesthetic and creating, in my opinion, his greatest body of work. There is a wonderful synergy to these pieces where modernism is rendered human by an organic earthiness."
