This fabulous, elegant necklace was made by Julio Marsella, whose company, Marner, was in existence from 1946 til 1957. (Prior to that, in 1939, he was a foreman for Trifari.) Marner made jewelry for Hobé, Kramer and Hattie Carnegie, and was known for his attention to quality and precision. This mesh necklace measures 13" along the top of the metal mesh "V" and has a 3" chain. The C-style snake chain on the surface looks gold plated. The necklace is marked on a cartouché on the back "Jewels by Julio." The necklace is in excellent condition, and will be shipped in a gift box.
