This fab necklace has eight chains made of Eloxal aluminum, with a shiny goldtone color. Each chain is a different style, and includes curb, Greek key, rope and textured link styles. The shortest chain is 16" and the longest is 23" (the clasp adds another 1-3/4" to the overall length of the necklace). The 1-1/8" wide clasp is marked on both sides "Made in Germany." The necklace weighs a mere 1.6 ounces (45 grams), and is in excellent vintage condition.
Eloxal jewelry ("electrolytic oxidation of aluminum") was made mostly from the 1940s to 1960s and generally pieces made from it are marked "Germany" or "West Germany." The material is extremely lightweight, and does not tarnish.
The necklace will be shipped in a gift box.
