Formed by stylized sunbeams cut out of a gilt metal plaque, this 1990s necklace is typical of the powerful, sculptural, highly refined style of Hervé Van der Straeten. The timeless design suits all occasions thanks to the many ways it can be worn, as the length can be altered with its adjustable cord.

 

This necklace is a collector’s item, as Hervé Van der Straeten no longer creates pieces. But the jewelry metaphor intrinsic to his DNA is found in all his decorative objects through their meticulous craftsmanship and the precious materials used, including gilt bronze, agate and amboyna burl marquetry imitating hardstone.

 

Lenght: 42 cm with an ajustable thread

Width: 8,3 cm
