This is one of those rare sets of jewelry that when the box opens, you gasp. It is a signed Boucher set of necklace and matching wide bracelet. They are Retro in style with chain coil that drape across the necklace. Each segment has a gold plated base metal slotted fan below a box set with round clear rhinestones and inset with square channel set red rhinestones. The necklace has a fold over snap clasp and it is signed Boucher with numbers 3162. The necklace is 14 1/2" long plus an additional !" where it dips in the front. It is 1" wide. It is missing 12 square red rhinestone on the end pieces as shown. It does not really show because the necklace is so ornate. There is also some loss to the gold plate where base metal shows through, especially against the skin. The swirling wide bracelet is in very good condition with no missing stones. It is signed Boucher behind one of the fans. There is some finish loss but not as much as the necklace. The bracelet measures 7" long by 1" wide. It has 6 segments that fold between piece for maximum comfort. I have four of the red square rhinestones and will ship them with the set.
This set and many other very special fine and costume jewelry pieces was purchased from the estate of Hollywood and Carmel triple Emmy winner and comedy writer Jenna McMahon who was known for her wonderful parties. As I type this ad I am looking at a picture on her desk of a vibrant Jenna with Rod Serling on one side and Jerry Lewis on the other. All are laughing.
