15 1/4″ with pendant dropping another 1 3/8″ below. Alloy (does not have silver/gold content). Why You’ll Love It. A fashion-forward statement, from 1930s to today. Embracing modernity and new ideas of beauty, this distinctive Art Deco necklace would’ve likely been owned by the most fashion-forward woman in the city. Its distinctive geometric shapes, made up of contrastingly colored galaith plastic, creates a striking look with a timeless silhouette. A truly unique piece, it would have – and still is – only worn by those with their finger on the pulse of what’s new and what’s next. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the setting. Fresh sheen, light surface wear, and no cracks or chips to the plastic. Secure clasp and jump ring is a replacement and not original. On the Machine-Age Movement. The machine age movement began in the United States after World War I, when there was an explosion of industry and technology including skyscrapers, automobiles, airplanes, and streamlined, metallic trains. Artists and jewelry makers, inspired by the newfangled aesthetics and Zeitgeist around this modern landscape, created machine age jewelry. These pieces featured the clean, efficient lines of machines and the sheen of metal. They allowed people to express with fashion the excitement of the modern age. Art Deco is one of the first truly international styles, that influenced the design of buildings, furniture, fashion and of course, jewelry. The movement was given a name from the international exposition of Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes, that was held in Paris in 1925 and largely dedicated to the jewelry arts. Born out of ideas of modernism and the Industrial Age, this manifested into designs that used Cubism’s bold abstraction and rectilinear shapes and combined them with intricate patterning, bold color and symmetry. High-end jewelry design houses like Cartier and Boucheron set the trends in gold and gemstones, which were then emulated by costume jewelry companies in glass or perhaps plastics, and brought to the masses. _gsrx_vers_1608 GS 9.5 (1608).
