Vintage, 1930s to 1980s
A spectacular design and expert intricate craftsmanship adds to the exotic beauty of this kissing dragons necklace. Each mythical creature sits at the end of the silver collar. When they kiss, the necklace closes.
The body of the necklace is hand stamped with a wavy scale pattern. Heads are made in Repousse technique where the metal is hammered from the back in order to create the raised form on the front. Once achieved, a solid sheet is soldered to the bottom creating a hollow form.
Adorned with in incredible detail with tiny applied silver wire and hammered accents. Ergonomic design allows the center to sit flat against the collar bone. It's truly gorgeous.
In excellent condition, the center is 11/16" by 3/8" at the deepest point. Necklace length is 15 1/2". Unmarked, carefully tested. Likely from Bali, made in the 1970's.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
