An intricate filigreed collar necklace in 18K yellow gold made by the Swiss jeweler Gay Frères. The company was best known for producing high end watch bracelets for Rolex, but throughout the 19th and 20th century, they also produced exceptionally well-made and inventive jewelry pieces. This collar wears beautifully and moves as fluidly as silk. The design is reminiscent of French necklaces from the 1890s, but the detailing is distinctly Art Deco.

Very Good. A figure-8 safety clasp is a later addition.
