These two pieces were auctioned separately as part of an estate property in Ontario. They are vintage and sold as is. Please read description and see photos for an in depth look at condition.
After WWII, Germany went through an economic struggle. In order to rebuild the economy, West Germany focused on manufacturing goods such as costume jewelry. As a result, Germany experienced what is known as Wirtschaftswunder or "economic wonder". Experience this wonder first hand by donning this jewelry set, both signed as is in the photos.
The necklace I believe is trying to imitate the coin necklace. It does not have any coin markings but more of a Celtic pattern in each round piece, connected by a rectangular hinge. It is GOLD COLOUR on METAL. It is 31" in length and each coin is 1.5 cm in width. It has GERMANY stamped on the back of the main clasp.
CONDITION: One of the hinges is connected by one clasp only, instead of two. There is some light tarnishing on the metal but is overall shiny and metallic.
The scarf ring is made of three metallic silver coils with a brutalist pattern of circles on a textured surface. It is a 1.25" in diameter and has some weight to it. Condition is like new, no signs of wear or tarnish, and is chrome like in its lustre. It has WESTERN GERMANY stamped on its clasp at the back.
