The Museum’s Costume Institute houses a striking necklace and bracelet set (American, 1925–35) of clear rock crystal beads; each spherical bead is enclosed in a simple yet dramatic “cage” of sterling silver wire. The minimalist design, rather than emphasizing color or ornament, showcases the essence of the materials themselves. This bold modern jewelry is the source for our necklace.
