Note: pictures show glare and white spots on the black stones. There are no flaws, no damage; mint condition. The registration card reads: SMART, registration #600/1, Genuine Swarovski, BLACK DIAMOND, $100.00. (that was the original selling price).
Rare and very early signed Swarovski necklace / brooch combination in the original box, satin lined, gold lame' presentation purse. It is named and numbered.
The large tear drop shaped pendant / brooch is done with genuine Swarovski crystal rhinestones and beautiful Hematite settings. These were named Black Diamond by Swarovski.
The brooch is constructed with open work in an off-set design. The large oval Hematite setting is in fancy prongs and set up HIGH. It floats above the rest of the brooch. It is accented with faceted, marquis cut Hematite stones. All stones are prong set. These are all framed with rows of crystal rhinestones.
It has a strong hook on the back to allow it to be worn on the VERY fluid necklace, or it can be worn alone. There is a close up picture of this loop attachment on the back of the brooch. It is very easy to slip onto a/o take off of the necklace and holds extremely well
The long, single strand, necklace is set with Swarovski crystal stones. It has a fold over clasp closure. The necklace could be used with other brooches that have a loop on the back. It can also be worn alone.
I've shown pictures with brooch attached to the necklace and the brooch alone. It is a stunner. It almost fills the palm of my hand!
The gold lame presentation purse, with white satin lining is 6.5 X 4.5. The fold over construction has a snap closure. The registration card reads: SMART, registration #600/1, Genuine Swarovski, BLACK DIAMOND, $100.00. I understand this to mean it was limited to a production of 600 pieces.
All metal is silver tone. The finish of this metal is BRILLIANT.
The single strand necklace is 18" end to end. It is so VERY FLUID!
The brooch is: 1.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches long. Domed construction stands out about 3/8 inches.
Amazing find, mint condition and as rare as it gets! This certainly belongs in a book about amazing costume jewelry. No part of this piece is signed. It was made by Swarovski before stamped signatures were done. Without the purse, and card this would be simply an, "unsigned beauty".
