DESCRIPTION: This vintage Napier Necklace, crafted of fine gold tone metal, exhibits links that alternate between texture and solid, both with a lovely sheen. Captured in photos under the brilliant California sun, the links sparkle with depth and precision. The geometric shape and exceptional quality of this necklace is what ‘Napier’ was known for and reflects the continuing evolution of the fashion movement.

To be worn with textured or solid gold tone earrings, this vintage Napier necklace goes well with jeans and a blouse, or your favorite little black dress or summer caftan! Versatile, spectacular, and a classic vintage piece that is always in style.

This necklace hails from an era when faux gold was all the rage, statement pieces defined fashion, and earrings were big and bold.

Napier Company was one of the first modern corporations in the United States, founded in 1898 in W. Attleboro MA. The company designed and manufactured silverware, gilt and silver plated jewelry. In the 1920s, Napier produced costume jewelry excelling in metalwork accented in faux stones and simple geometric shapes. The company was sold in 1999.

WHY I LIKE IT: A vintage costume jewelry necklace is always fashionable and belongs in every jewelry collection. It may be a nod to the past but a very deliberate nod that redefines moderne. We especially love the design combination of shiny gold tone against textured goldtone.
