Vintage Antonio Pineda Zig Zag Necklace 970 sterling silver may be for Tiffany & Co (see end of description.) This is a stunning neck piece with various sized sections - larger in the front and tapering to the back for ultimate comfort. As the photos show, they are three dimensional large sterling links that are flexible and conform to the neck. The necklace has a very strong clasp also shown in the photos. Is an exceptional vintage piece with fabulous presence. It is necklace of real substance and beaut. Hallmarked with Eagle 121, CM 970 inside of Taxco Mexico. He sold to Tiffany & Co using this hallmark.
CONDITION: Excellent condition with nice tight and safe clasp, links in good order. Only drawback is that it needs to be restrung intact but certain section aren't sitting flat because they are disconnected from the next link. I have taken $300.00 off but it will cost under $100.00 to have it done based on past experience. I'd do it but I live in a small town and the jeweler would take forever to get to it.
SIZE: The longest link is 1 1/2 inches and tapers to 3/4 inches. The length is approx. 17 inches and sits on the nape of the neck and rests gently on the shoulders or base of the neck.
Buyer responsibilities: While I do my best to describe any potential flaws with equal attention to its attributes, please use the zoom feature to examine the item to make a determination if this meets your standards for vintage and antique items being offered. Email should you have any questions or require more information.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
