Gold and Diamond Tubogas Necklace
European Retro jewels, like this dynamic gold and diamond necklace, were inspired by the 1937 Paris Exposition, which fostered a new wave in art jewelry inspired by both industry and nature. Led by great Parisian houses, jewelry designers played with pumped-up scale and volume, adding a distinctive lightness of materials and touch of humor to the mix. In this chic 1940s necklace, the slinky gold Tubogas—or gaspipe—chain, is mounted with twin volutes and studded with diamonds. It sits lightly at the collarbone for elegant day-to-evening wear.
