This necklace is a superb example of Art Deco style elegance, showcasing the distinctive traits of Wiwen Nilsson's design ethos.

The pendant features a cross composed of square faceted cut rock crystals, set in sterling silver with meticulous geometric lines and clean cuts that echo the period's modern aesthetic. The metalwork is exquisite, with a brushed silver finish that gives the piece a contemporary edge, while the ring and bar chain is a nod to Nilsson's unique flair for combining functional elements with style.

Describing this necklace as anything less than wearable art would not do it justice. Its bold yet refined design lends an air of sophistication to any ensemble, whether it’s complementing a sleek business attire or serving as the centerpiece at a chic social gathering.

And a bit of history to adorn the conversation: Wiwen Nilsson wasn’t just a trailblazer in design; he revolutionized the fashion world in the 1930s by transforming the cross into a stylish and coveted jewelry item.
