    I love this silver 15" choker. Beautiful construction w/push button clasp. Each articulated "snake" row is 3/8" wide with two .75" stylized flowers. I couldn't get a good closeup of the signature but here's my description on the oval push button: script Ernest over caps ORIGINAL over script Steiner.

    From the little bit of research I could find on the internet this is a logo for the fine jewelry company in Florida. Steiner & Co. seems to be the same company (?might be wrong?) that was based in NYC. They both operated from the 1940's on.

    Anyway I love this - can't remember where I found it. Don't wear it much because it's a true choker! :)

      Thank you PCC - more caps PLEASE. And thanks Ken for your comment on this lovely old choker. It's really nice. I hope an expert will give me a little more history since I could only find a meager amount.
