Hammered Gold Statement Necklace by Pauline Rader (late 1960s - early 1970s)
1960s mod meets 1970s bling meets Etruscan Revival fabulousness on this stunning and highly collectible statement piece by costume jewelry designer Pauline Rader. Rader is a Pearl Vintage favorite. Her design aesthetic, which borrows motifs from nature and ancient cultures, is always rad and often loud. This large, heavy necklace is no exception. The chain, while adjustable, is meant to be worn choker-style and is 13." The entire pendant (top and bottom plates combined measures 6.5" by 5." Strong yet feminine--a gem of a find.
