Vintage Bigney Sterling Silver Triple Woven Choker Necklace

Offering a really wonderful, vintage sterling silver necklace with a triple strand, flexible woven design that feels as slinky and sexy as it looks. A very modern design, yet made in the 1940s. This is a choker style necklace, please note the measurements. It can also be doubled and worn as a bracelet. An elegant, substantial, versatile necklace that can be dressed up or worn with jeans.

MATERIAL Sterling silver

SIZE Necklace measures a wearable length of 15.5 inches. The necklace is about 7.5 mm wide and each of the three stands measures 2.5mm thickness. Weighs 44.0 grams.

MARKS Hallmarked Bigney Sterling on the clasp. Tests as sterling silver with jeweler's acid and a test stone. The fold over clasp is silver plated metal.

AGE 1940s

SYMBOLISM or HISTORY Bigney sterling pieces are rare. There is an S.O. Bigney that was in business from 1896 to 1946 but the description does not mention that they produced sterling silver, only gold and gold filled jewelry. However, a lot of jewelry makers turned to sterling silver during World War 2 because the metals they used to make gold filled and costume jewelry were needed for the war effort. So this may be the case with S.O. Bigney. Of the few sterling silver pieces I've seen signed Bigney, some are very modern in design and ahead of their time, like this necklace, and some are very traditional Victorian Revival that was popular in the 1940s.

CONDITION Softened patina on the silver. No issues to note. The last photo is taken indoors in natural light. Excellent, vintage condition.
