Ask a question

If you adore the look of old vintage—with its strong lines and classic patina, this German bar link chain is calling your name.

I couldn’t find any maker’s marks but the design and quality make me think she dates from 1940s and was made in Pforzheim at one of the established jewelry houses like Friedrich Speidel. Regardless she’s got style in spades.

Bar link chains intersperse bar links and curb link chain. In this case, the bars take the shape of a graphic twisted design that also suggests a 1940s aesthetic.

Style Tips:
If you’re a classic minimalist, I suggest wearing her alone, peaking out under a crisp shirt collar. Or add a great charm or pendant to the oversized spring clasp for timeless flair.

If you live by the motto ‘more is more’—then layer this piece with longer and shorter necklaces. Mix in pearls, attach pendants of different lengths and let her be the star of your show.

In the images, I’ve styled her with different pendants and charms—most of which are available in the Charmed by SPJ section of my site.

Design Details:
* 18 inches long
* Gold fill
* Made in Germany, 1940s
* Oversized spring clasp
* 11.1 grams

For the Antik By SPJ collection, I take great care to find very special antique and vintage jewelry pieces and components that are of exceptional quality. It’s my passion to revive their beauty and craftsmanship in a relevant, chic way.

But they do show gentle signs of their age and history. And they deserve to be treated with care and love. Each piece is unique and tells its own story, and unless noted, cannot be altered.

Please reach out with any questions. I’m always happy to hear from you!
