This offering is for a very high end haute couture 30’s art deco designed choker. It is a magnificent unsigned Ciner piece with all the exceptional characteristics we expect from this famous designer. Measurements: 16” long x 3/4’ wide; each link also 3/4” long. This high quality choker weighs 4.2 oz./120 grams. Sixteen large links joined together form the choker and it is closed with a rhinestone covered slide clasp. The rhodium is in perfect condition. Each small link connector is marked but I don’t recognize the marks which may even be the result of pooling of the rhodium. The condition is excellent considering its age and use of clear pave set rhinestones. The stones are all original and no restoration has been performed. Out of the hundreds of stones 7 are missing, 5 being on the link with the clasp. Since the missing stones are located on the back of the choker they are unseen when the necklace is worn. All the rhinestones are clear and sparkling except one that has darkened. It isn’t noticed at all being embedded among hundreds of brilliant stones. The design of this choker is one that is seen on other Ciner (signed and unsigned) art deco chokers with size and stone variations. This choker is a classic art deco piece with an amazing design. It is in amazing condition especially considering its age. Wear it for those celebratory occasions and heads will turn. The BONUS piece is a matching bracelet that belonged to my grandmother. She wore it often and, as a result, it isn’t in near perfect condition. When worn, however, the bracelet’s brilliance is enhanced as it has the same design as the necklace. The length of the bracelet is 7” with seven links identical in size as those on the choker. I see no missing stones, but several are gray and, overall, the brilliance is less than that seen on the choker. Since the pieces are worn a distance from each other the difference is not noticeable. This demi parure is outstanding and an exceptional example of high quality art deco jewelry. The price is based solely on the value points of the necklace. The bracelet is a bonus piece for which there is no charge. Please contact me if you have any questions. FREE Domestic shipping by First Class Insured Mail.
