This rare 1960's parure is elegant, effortless and truly divine! Of all the wonderful Coppola e Toppo creations, this is undoubtedly and delightfully one of the most wearable. You do not have to don a gown or walk a runway to wear these pieces!
Graduated strands of exquisite turquoise blue pate de verre glass beads and metallic colored enameled glass beads are very cleverly woven (on nylon) from front to back into the wonderful signature Coppola e Toppo swag bib. The bib culminates in the gorgeous, beaded, heart-shaped ends (and a hook and extender chain, of course). Inscribed on the back of one of the hearts is "Made in Italy by Coppola e Toppo". The heart-shaped, clip-on earrings (also signed on the back) are a perfect diminutive complement to the wonderful scale of the necklace.
Necklace measures 17" long on the inside; 14 1/2" without the hook and extender chain; the bib measures 2" long at the longest when worn. Earrings measures approx. 1".
Condition: Very good vintage condition with no discernible damage to the blue glass. The black spots at the front of almost every gold bead are shadows, not loss. A few of the metallic colored beads do, however, have some finish loss. Where the gold loses it's finish, the coppery red color is revealed. On one of the coppery red beads, the loss reveals a metallic blue. Some finish loss to the back of the heart-shaped ends. None of this is a distraction from the beauty of the necklace.
