Necklaces & Pendants

The shape and design of the Art Deco necklace-pendant was borne out of the change in fashion; experiencing a lower neckline and a higher hem than generations before.

From Rivière necklaces that sat on the neck, to pendants that thread through the cleavage and swung at hip level, necklaces and pendants were worn to compliment new trends that championed simplicity and severity.

Many pieces were multi-functional and could be worn as a necklace, brooch or bracelet, reflecting both the advancement of jewellery technology and a playfulness which characterised the era.
