Story

SPECIAL SAVINGS!

Weighty and spectacular on, the design of this festoon necklace feels as great as it looks.

The festoon necklace was in high fashion from around 1790 until the 1820s, the flattering form continues well into today. In order for the item to truly be a festoon there must be swags or drapes of chain, beads or metal elements as part of the overall design.

Its inspiration is the Renaissance, with its proliferation of cherubs, faces, floral motifs and a masque. Early in the 20th century, the Beaux Arts utilized these earlier themes. Many Italian designers continued the whimsical and ornate creations for some decades.

This silver example from circa 1940 fits the category with its double chains and silver drops. Quite august in weight, the necklace is composed of ten large open work panels.

The medallions are attached with two lengths of silver chain with the lower one suspending ten triangle shaped elements appointed with open work and designs. A hook clasp completes the necklace.
