Necklaces and Neck Jewellery
For thousands of years, necklaces have been among the most beloved pieces of jewellery for both women and men. In early human cultures, for example, shells were strung on a cord and worn around the neck. Nowadays, the range of different shapes and designs is almost unmanageable: Whether a magnificent necklace, a necklace with a precious stone, a necklace with a pendant, an amulet, or a costume jewellery necklace, whether in gold, silver, or adorned with diamonds or pearls, whether discreet and elegant or opulent and eye-catching - there is a matching necklace for almost every occasion and every outfit, and every variation has its unique charm. As popular jewellery pieces, necklaces also make for original gift ideas for many memorable occasions. Necklaces are the perfect gift for a birthday, an anniversary or simply as a token of appreciation. In addition, necklaces can also be a small treat for oneself.
Our ars mundi selection of necklaces emphasises the connection to art and artisanship. Many works are by contemporary jewellery designers such as Anna Mütz, Christiane Wendt, Petra Waszak, Marc Kolsters, and Atelier Kreuchauff. However, you will also find popular motifs by famous artists of past epochs, such as Claude Monet, Franz Marc, or Gustav Klimt. These necklaces feature excerpts from widely recognised paintings tailored to fit the specific form of neck jewellery. In our online shop, you can buy these and other beautiful necklaces. By adorning them with your personal favourite motif, these necklaces become exceptional daily companions.
The variety of materials used to craft these necklaces is as diverse as the forms and motifs themselves. The materials used in the production of the necklaces include gold, silver and pearls, stones and precious stones, glass elements, porcelain, crystals, and many other materials. Usually, different materials are combined into one piece of jewellery. For the items in our selection, we have emphasised high-quality artisanship - and, in many cases the items are handmade. With a necklace from ars mundi, you're always acquiring an incredibly special creation that you will enjoy for a long time.
