Reserved for G only -thank you************************************************************************************************

A really lovely pastel green enamel necklace by Bernard, which is an earlier piece (1920s) with the gold covered forget-me-not flower roundels in the centre of each silver panel. A petite, heavier piece which is a choker length but which works tremendously well as a doubled bracelet. Stacking look achieved! It is just the right length for twice around the wrist and fastens easily too.

The earlier pieces like this often had the gold roundels at the centre-these were replaced later by enamel dabs or else marcasites at the centre. Nice to have one with the gold, as it looks fabulous against this green – beautiful colours and I have to say, they look beautiful on the wrist, which is how I preferred to adapt the piece. Comfortable and contemporary as a “stacked” bracelet.

These pastel pieces were popular in the 1920s and 1930s, even with the British Royal Family, who were known to buy pieces directly from Bernard himself. This pastel green enamel is definitely one of the rarer colours so it is wonderful to see this piece in excellent condition too.

There are 16 of these enamel panels and it measures approx 38cm (a touch under 15 inches in length). I did wear it as a choker but as mentioned I preferred to see it doubled on the wrist, which meant I could see the beautiful green enamel much more often. In excellent order, including the enamel and the gilding on the tiny forget-me-nots.

I shall post by Tracked and Signed in a new gift box as the boxes in the images are for display only. Thank you.
