About us

silla was born out of a passion for beautiful objects: special pieces with aesthetic and historical significance. In 2009, after years of collecting, Andrew Silla and his wife Grace began to work privately with clients from their residence in Southern Maryland. Quickly outgrowing the space, the business was moved from Maryland to Pennsylvania in 2012 and after several warehouse location changes it was firmly settled in the present brick-and-mortar location in downtown Shippensburg.

The 9000 square foot brick-and-mortar gallery is home to a large collection of works of art and estate jewelry. We specialize in sculpture circa 1860 through 1930 with a particular emphasis on the Animaliers and as such the gallery always has a very large collection of exceptional European and American sculpture available on display.

Item # C104271 

A super long and playful collection of graduated 14 karat yellow gold beads over an internal gold link chain. The length allows it to be worn either as a double-layered necklace or as one incredibly long statement piece. It has an interesting clasp that is cleverly integrated into the beads, operating with a circular push-button on the top of one bead that works to release the internal clasp.


  • Composition: 14 Karat Yellow Gold
    All items are rigorously tested for metal content. Ask us about our 4-step metal content testing process. Metal content is guaranteed.
  • Markings: push-button clasp release stamped "14$" (the $ might be a stylized EA)
  • Dimensions: 35" wearable length
  • Age: 20th Century
  • Total Weight: 41.72 grams
  • Condition notes: Some light wear to the 18k gold wash on the top of the 14k gold, showing the lighter hue of 14k beneath on the apex of some beads. The chain has a tiny soldered repair at the joint of the clasp and a bit of the solder is visible along the edge of the tiny bead. Approximately 1" of chain visibility where no beads occupy the length, this allowing the beads to be able to comfortably shift back and forth depending on the number of curves in it without buckling. A fine presentation.
