Circa 1960's signed Vendome beaded bib necklace made with multi faceted green crystals. The crystals are 2 shades of green. Half of each bead is coated with an iridescent aurora borealis coating. The bib measures 12" long, adjustable with hook clasp to 14" long. The 3 row crystal collar measures 3/4" wide. Attached to this are rows of crystals in various lengths. The bib measures 3 1/8" at the widest, in the center. This piece is much nicer in person, the photos do not do it justice. It can be seen on page 77 of Ball & Toem's book Masterpieces of Costume Jewelry. You can also see this on the 3rd episode (July 11 2014) of the up coming new PBS show Antiques Alley. Condition is good, I can find no damage, all crystals are brilliant.
