This stylish necklace from Tiffany & Co. is one of Frank Gehry's celebrated jewelry designs! Known as the Frank Gehry ® Fish Necklace, the design was inspired by Gehry's long-time fascination with fish and their unique form. The necklace consists of 7 elongated "fish" links that hang from a sterling silver snake chain. The fish have a unique, asymmetrical design that accentuates their angles and flowing curves - one of the hallmarks of Gehry's works. The fish vary in size, and are crafted in a variety of materials, including sterling silver, black onyx, nephrite green jade, acacia wood,and pernambuco wood. The sterling snake chain is threaded through a hole drilled within each fish bead, allowing the links to hang in a group at the center. Stamped on the lobster clasp the authentic "TIFFANY & CO." hallmark on one side, and the signature "© Gehry 925" signature on the other side. Accompanying the necklace is an authentic Tiffany & Co. blue suede drawstring pouch. This fabulous collaborative piece between a renowned architect and legendary jewelry maker would make a fantastic everyday accessory!
