Art Deco collar necklace with sparkling clear rhinestones and green and black Bakelite accents 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.
New information about the makers of these jewels has come to light. Barbara Schwartz and Robin Deutsch have just published an article revealing Schreiber and Hiller of Pforzheim as the designers of these pieces as well as the Esha Randel line of jewelry. Go to Trufaux Jewels for all the fascinating details. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their research.
This striking necklace combines channel-set sparkling, clear rhinestones and fifteen alternating green and black Bakelite accent beads (1/2"). All of the edges are angled for added contouring and interest. The rest of the necklace, constructed to curve, measures 16" by 7/16" and encircles the neck beautifully. The v-insert clasp is perfectly secure and is marked DRGM on the reverse.
If you love Art Deco, consider adding DRGM to your jewelry wardrobe.
