A fabulous and rare vintage SPHINX rhodium plated floral necklace, encrusted with sparkling marcasites.  A wonderful Art Deco style, with marcasite studded scrolls which go all the way around to the clasp.  The necklace is rhodium plated, which is a metal of the platinum family, used on high end costume jewellery to prevent tarnishing.  It is still wonderfully shiny even now.  Signed ‘Sphinx’ on an oval cartouche on the reverse.

 

Looking at it with the naked eye, all of the stones appear present and sparkling, but on closer inspection with a jewellers loupe, one of the stones has been lost.  The stones are absolutely minute – they measure just 1mm (which is smaller than a pin head) so I can assure you that it isn’t visible – only if scrutinising the enlarged photographs.  It is such a beautiful and classic piece – highly sought after and collectable.

 

Sphinx was an English Costume Jewellery Designer and Manufacturer, established in 1948 in London.  They were famous for their exquisitely designed high-end pieces with fabulous rhinestones, which looked just like the real thing.  They made jewellery for Kenneth Jay Lane, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Saks 5th Ave, etc.  Therefore, many of their pieces were not signed.  This is one of the rare signed pieces.

 

Looks Fabulous When It Catches The Light!  Particularly artificial light.

Measures approximately: 16″  or 40.5cm

 

in Very Good Vintage Condition
