As professor for jewellery design at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts from 1972 to 1990, Hermann Jünger (1928 – 2005) has influenced generations of goldsmiths.
The necklace with variable elements was developed by Jünger in variations since 1987 and sold in a square black case, this way creating not only a necklace but at the same time an objet d’art - each case assembled differently. Case no. 29 contains besides the 18k gold string made by Niessing, four geometric elements made from tombac with a matte fine gold plating.

The case is accompanied by a copy of the original invoice dating from December 1991 and a copy of the available jewellery elements, an assembled case and a short description by Hermann Jünger.
