About

A silvered metal collar necklace by French couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Gaultier's designs were often brilliantly irreverent, drawing upon street culture and ethnic influence. Very interesting rigid multi-strand design from the 1997 Masai collection inspired by African popular jewelry. Marked "GAULTIER" at the back. Link chain gives necklace length flexibility. Extremely elegant to wear. Excellent vintage condition.
The Masia Collection was issued for the fall 1997 runway collection. Gaultier said about it: "I had the image of the wife of an ambassador of an African country living in a city like New York or Paris. That woman is dressed in an Occidental way but she keeps her African roots with some accessories like a turban and big jewelry".

Diameter of collar = 5.12 in. (13 cm)
Opening of collar = 3.18 in. (8 cm)
Necklace will fit a small to medium size neck.
