The term Tubogas refers to a type of chain formed when a pair of gold strips are interlocked and wrapped tightly together, creating a flexible tube that requires no soldering. Introduced at the 1939 New York World’s Fair, this type of chain was popular during the late 1930s and 1940s, when precious metals were scarce and innovation was key in creating beautiful, versatile items such as this necklace.
