Gold Tone and Black Enamel Bib Necklace; Bib Necklace; Necklace with Black Enamel; Decorated Black Enamel Bib Necklace


Gold tone bib necklace with black enamel. To me this necklace has an Egyptian Revival feel to it. In 1922 when Tutankhamen's tomb was discovered images of the Egyptian archaeological finds were seen throughout the western world. Egyptian jewelry was linked to ancient opulence and was viewed as very mysterious. Many costume jewelers quickly began producing their own version of Egyptian jewelry, many times using enamel inlays or animals such as jackals, falcons, beetles and cobras. This necklace has 17 oval decorated and enamel discs hanging from a decorated and enameled "V" shaped link. Measuring approximately 16 inches in length the necklace is secured by a screw together safety clasp. The enamel is in good condition with some small signs of wear consistent with age.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

If your item needs to be sized, engraved etc., please add an additional 5 working days to shipping estimates. Antique jewelry requires skilled jewelers that are accustomed to working on fine antique jewelry, therefore we prefer that all sizing and alterations be preformed by our jewelers.

Each ring purchased from us includes one complimentary sizing. Please understand some rings cannot be sized, such as eternity bands, enameled rings or rings that would have to be sized so much that the integrity of the mounting would be compromised. It is for that reason we ask prior to purchase, that you ask if the ring can be sized to your specifications.
