Circa 1940's, this is a spectacular necklace from Marcel Boucher. It's hand-wrought and extremely substantial, weighing in at 158.2 grams, or over 5 troy ounces.
Boucher was born in Paris, and apprenticed with Cartier. He has a reputation of being perhaps the greatest costume jewelry designer. In the 1940's, he produced silver jewelry in Mexico under the name Parisina. In 1957, he opened his business in New York.
This is a truly luxurious necklace. Composed of twenty-four double ring links, each with a twisted circle and a smooth one. The closure is a pin which slips out (although not entirely - it does stop, so no worries about losing it), and when closed has a seamless appearance. Looks and feels fantastic on the neck. This one is a go to piece. Works with any outfit. Makes the outfit. I can't say enough about it. It's classy and it's beautifully crafted.
Measures 15 5/8" long, and 1 1/16" wide.
Weighs 158.2 grams.
Signed and hallmarked "Sterling Mexico Parisina".
Collector quality, excellent vintage condition.
