This linear assemblage is rendered in artfully reeded, relief style yellow gold, creating a sensual, romantically fluid and aesthetically feminine pattern. In the 1950's, vintage era, at the same time as the resurgence of sumptuous diamond necklaces, gold necklaces gained increasing popularity as a complement to the fashionable afternoon dress. Their overall designs were fluid and extremely feminine, distinguished by an extraordinarily varied and imaginative rendering of the gold, worked into fabric-liked patterns, as if the jewelers were challenging the couturiers in reproducing the opulent and pleasant feel of textiles. Some were designed as knotted scarves, with beaded borders to simulate fabric trimmings, pioneered by Boucheron in Paris, others as 'zip necklaces' or 'braided ribbon' designed by Tiffany & Co. This aesthetically alluring vintage necklace secures with a well-constructed tongue-and-groove clasp bearing the signature 'Tiffany & Co.', the purity mark '750' denoting 18k gold, and a deployant latch for additional safety.

Founded by Charles Louis Tiffany and his partner John B. Young in 1837, the very modest establishment in New York was called Tiffany & Young, a tiny store stocked with stationery, Chinese bric-a-brac, pottery, umbrellas, and desks. It was not until 1848 that they began to emphasize on what would eventually become their most important lines of production: jewelry and silver. In the year 1886, Tiffany introduced the six-pronged setting for diamond solitaires which has continued to bear the name of 'Tiffany setting' to the present time. Louis Comfort Tiffany took over the direction of his father's jewelry workshops after he died in 1902. Eighty-five percent of the gold jewelry sold today by 'Tiffany & co.' is made on their seventh floor workshop at their Fifth Avenue address.
