Lovely necklace by JOMAZ features a center piece inspired by classic Art Deco design with its geometric bows and swirls. The link necklace is accented with baguettes and this detail extends to the fold over clasp. The piece is plated in shiny rhodium which shows a bit of discoloration as shown; it is signed on the back near the centerpiece of the necklace. I'm afraid my picture of the signature is a bit blurry, but it is definitely there. The necklace measures just over 15 inches in length.
The Mazer Brothers, Joseph and Louis, began their jewelry business in Philadelphia, PA in 1917, moving to NYC in 1927. In 1946, Joseph Mazer left the company to form Joseph J. Mazer and Co. (better known as JOMAZ) and produced jewelry until 1981. Louis Mazer remained with the original company until 1951, the last year the jewelry was made there. Jewelry signed MAZER and JOMAZ is very well made with high quality stones and excellent plating, often resembling fine jewelry.
