Product DescriptionThe most exquisite early 1950's Chanel glass pearl and Gripoix glass drop festoon necklace.
The three rows of glass pearls are
interspercedwith clear rondelles. These rondellespacers are most unusual with only four pastes inset and reverse set so that the points are outermost. The use of reverse set stones is a feature of very few designers. It was used by Schreiner and seen here by Chanel in this exceptionally stunning necklace.
The clasp is a knockout - a central green
gripoixstone surrounded by clear round and baguette pastes. The clasp is marked "France".
centreof each row of pearls is suspended a green gripoixglass drop bead. each bead graduated in size.
The quality of the paste stones is superb - they really sparkle in the light and are of the highest quality. The glass pearls are pretty well perfect and the clasp is fabulous. The whole necklace is substantial and weighty with the highest quality components.
The inner length is 15.3/4 inch and the outer length 19 inches. The necklace drops 4 inches to
bottomof the largest green drop.
This early piece of Chanel is extremely rare and is a joy to wear - truly magnificent. You will have to look for a long time to find such an exceptional piece of couture costume jewellery.
