Vintage SYMMETALIC 14K Gold & Sterling Silver Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: Manufactured by W.E. Richards Co - here's a stunning necklace from the top of their line in jewelry - Symmetalic. The necklace is most unique in that it has a yellow gold top with an underlying layer of silver. The design is floral in nature with curlicues and has a chain portion. To add a bit of diversity to the piece, some large cream pearls have been added - whether genuine or not, I know not but my nose tells me they are probably genuine cultured! Spring clasp closure.
CONDITION: Very nice though the piece is in need of a good polish. This, I shall leave to the new owner.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold Overlay over Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: Symmetalic STERLING & 14K
SIZE: Length of the neck piece is about 17". Design section alone is 3" wide x 1-1/4" approx.
WEIGHT: 10.7 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: "Symmetalic" was the top line of the W.E. Richards Company, Attleboro, Mass., exhibiting superior craftsmanship in the use of quality materials, in this instance, 14K Gold and Sterling Silver. The Symmetalic line was first presented in the mid 1930's and was discontinued by the 1940s. Why? Perhaps the manufacture of the pieces was too time consuming to make the profit the company needed to turn.
