Fantastic late 1960s - 1970s, I believe based on style, modernist sterling silver and ribbon long cascading circles collar necklace signed by Niels Erik From of Denmark. Scandinavian jewelry is one of my favorite genres - I love the slick, innovative design, the bold minimalism and the "honesty" of materials used so I am always on the look out for good examples. The collar necklace at hand is a stunning creation with its four sets of tangent circles cascading down the collar bone, hanging off an ax-form station at the top. The sterling component is presently accompanied by two lengths of cream-colored ribbon that tie at the back of the neck yet those can easily be changed for black velvet or whatever it is you like. Very unusual and quite a rare necklace by From to come upon - and from what I understand, this type of collar necklace is really really popular again. The collar's sterling part is 3 1/8" wide (or E to W; slightly curved to better fit the neck) by 5 1/4" long (including the cascade of circles) while the ribbon lengths are 18 3/8" on each side. The total weight comes up to 30.5 grams and the necklace is fully signed with From's name as well as "STERLING DENMARK" and "925S". It dates in the late 1960s-1970s and is in excellent vintage condition with fantastic style, great presence, with nice patina and no damage or repairs noted; one of the slickest necklaces I have seen in a long time!
