Footnotes

  • This necklace is comparable to the work of the 20th century British jeweller, Sah Oved (1900-1983) who was responsible for some of the most original and striking designs created before the Second World War. Of particular note is the pioneering use of rough crystals which was also a feature of Sah's early work. The silver leaves set with red paste are similar in execution to those on a silver cross, made by Sah Oved, around 1920 and illustrated in the photograph above.

    See Bonhams catalogue, Fine Jewellery, London, 6 April 2006, lot 136, and Bonhams catalogue, Signature Styles, 6 December 2007, lots 7 and 8, for jewels set with rough crystals, by Sah Oved, made during the 1930s.
