We were inspired to create this piece by a photograph of a long and elegant antique necklace. This kind of necklace is called a sautoir, which is a French term for a long necklace displaying a tassel or other ornament. These types of necklaces were introduced in the early 1900s when silhouettes were becoming more streamlined, but really came into popularity during the 1920s and 30s, thanks to their resonance with the art deco style. With the styles of decades past coming back into vogue, this stylish necklace is perfect for making a dramatic statement in your looks. The modern bride would look especially demure with this accessory dangling from her neck.
