Jakob Bengel necklace that reflects that of the machine age. Bengel made jewelry in the 1920's and 1930's that had a very different style that was only expressed by him. This very unique form of jewelry making came directly from the individualistic style that only Bengel could produce. This piece is just that being composed of flat chrome metal discs linked together that flow all the way down to two large chrome metal beads. These beads are followed by two green galalith sections and follow right down to the centerpiece. This section is made up of two long rectangular chrome metal pieces connecting to a chrome piece that covers a green semi circle piece of galalith. This necklace is secured by a large chrome metal spring ring clasp that holds very nicely and the necklace measures nearly 18" long and 9" when closed. The cubist style of the necklace assured me this is a Bengel. As is well known Bengel never signed his pieces but any fan of his work could tell you that this is one of his.
