Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1930

Dating from the Art Deco period, circa 1930, this tubogas necklace is a revival of the Second World War era jewellery. Tubogas translates literally to “gas pipe” and is the name given to a type of chain formed from a pair of interlocking gold strips wrapped tightly together. This was popular in the 1930-40s because of the scarcity of metals during the war.

This piece is French made and has a wearable length of 17 inches. It's crafted in 14k gold and can be worn on it's own or layered.
