Vintage Ivar Holth Norway Sterling Silver & Enamel Stingray Collar
* * SOLD * *
An enameled collar, made in sterling silver by notable Norwegian jeweler Ivar Holth. This is composed of 12 enameled plaques, modeled in abstract two-lobed forms. These forms remind me of stingrays, and, linked together as they are, they appear to be part of a graceful procession. The enamel is pearl grey (almost white), with subtle iridescence and sparkle. The etched-looking bubble details that populate each stingray plaque are delicate and especially winning. This design is not commonly found. Necklace lays flat over the collar bone. Closure is a large spring ring. This is fully marked : 925, sterling, Norway, and with Holth's monogram.
Straight length is approx 16 1/4". Fits necks 15 inches and smaller. Each plaque measures approx 21.25 mm x 24 mm.
To determine your neck size, a measurements should be taken around the middle of the neck, about one inch from where your neck meets your shoulders.
