Art Deco collar necklace in black Bakelite or Galalith and clear rhinestones marked DRGM. DRGM is the German patent mark and business model protection mark (Deutsches Reich Geschmack Muster) used from 1891 until WW2. It has come to represent a stylish jewelry genre most commonly displayed in clear rhinestones and a silver-colored, zinc alloy. The designs are sleek, sophisticated, and timeless-- Art Deco design at its best. The DRGM pieces with Bakelite inserts are deemed most desirable.
This striking necklace combines black Bakelite bars and channel-set sparkling, clear rhinestones in a stunning, streamlined silhouette. The front has a chevron pattern; it measures about 3-1/4" across by 1-1/8". The remainder of the necklace is 3/8". All of the edges are angled for added contouring and interest. The necklace, constructed to curve, measures 16-1/4" and encircles the neck beautifully. The v-insert clasp is perfectly secure and is marked DRGM, rubbed, on the reverse.
If you love Art Deco, consider adding DRGM to your jewelry wardrobe.
