I love all of the pieces. My favorites are the beaded rainbow necklace and the bracelet with the glass enamel and carnelian glass beads in the center.
I found this site while looking for information on GES. GESCH signed pieces. - Terri, Sun, 19 Jul 2009 11:50PM

1 [Sold] Splendid paste and sterling German Deco necklace. It has paste set baguettes and rounds with a central green stone. The chain is sterling links with baguettes and rounds and has several hidden spring-loaded clasps that allow the chain to be turned into a necklace and bracelet.
The marks are very interesting. Both pendant and chain are stamped Germany Sterling 935 and there are two other marks--one has the letters KP set at an angle and the other has a central Star of David with the letters E G on either side. I have not been able to find any information on these marks.

7 German Deco-style necklace of pale green bakelite, chrome and channel set rhinestones. Some of the rhinestones have grayed. Marked Patented D.R.G. M. 4438525 on one of the chrome pieces. According to Moro, page 133, DRGM was a German patent mark (meaning Deutsches Reich Geschmacksmuster) and was used on both jewelry or applied to technical inventions. It was used until 1945. Thus, the mark could refer to the chrome strips with rhinestones.

A large factory, established in 1885, it closed its doors in 1977.
Bracelet is marked with KJAG, German marks and "Gold Shell." According to Caroline Sunday: Gold shell means that the bracelet is made from actual sheets of solid gold heat processed onto metal, more gold content than gold plate (cold processed plating), more than gold filled (heat processed layering), but not as much as solid gold (which is gold all the way through). Not a lot of gold shell pieces are out there. It is a very common process for watches though. For instance,...
