A chrome and galalith Jakob Bengel necklace that has a hexagon shaped centerpiece. Jakob Bengel's jewelry is a style all of it's own with unique composition having galalith and chrome metal done in amazing geometric designs known as Machine Aged jewelry. Bengel created these designs from the mid 1920s to the late 1930s. This item is composed of rectangular chrome metal links that are each 1/2" in length and lead down to two sections of galalith spaced by small chrome metal pieces. This section has two 1/8" long blue galalith pieces that are separated by one red 1/8" galalith piece. The entire section is capped by two chrome metal beads and connects to two skinny chrome metal links that are 1 1/8" long a piece. These pieces are attached to two more large chrome metal beads which connect to the center pendant. This pendant has six unequal sides and forms a hexagon. This hexagon has a screwed geometric piece of galalith in the center that is dark blue in color and looks unique. The galalith and chrome work surrounding the center pendant is strung onto a great silver metal chain as well. The necklace has a spring ring clasp that holds very well and the entire necklace measures 17" long with the pendant measuring 1 7/8" long by 1 1/4" wide. The necklace is not signed Bengel but it is a Bengel.
have all the qualities that make up most of the Bengel pieces I have seen.
