A striking 18ct yellow gold crossover necklace from the Retro period that showcases exceptional design and craftsmanship. With platinum reserved for wartime use, the warmer tones of yellow and rose gold dominated jewellery designs. Styled to represent an elegant, slim, fabric neck tie, we see an undulating form with an openwork ladder construction, which gives the piece supreme flexibility and movement. An elegant diamond set buckle form is the centre piece of this necklace with both strands appearing to contract as they pass through it. Two sharply tapered ends have been capped by sparkling diamond set sections to complete the design. Bold, uncluttered and streamlined forms were predominant during the Retro period, with this example being a particularly fine example. As wearable today as it was when originally created, this considered and imaginative design features exquisitely textured gold, reminiscent of grosgrain ribbon. The fluid form creates an illusion of movement.
Retro jewellery inspired by Hollywood; its bold and elaborate style makes it highly coveted and collectable.
