An imposing vintage 1950's necklace and bracelet set by Henkel & Grosse, for Christian Dior.
The bold black and white design is a real eye catcher.
On both the necklace & bracelet there are six discs of black glass inset with faux mother of pearl cabachons, set in ornate filigree mounts. Square cut faceted black glass stones and square round topped white glass stones are mounted on one side, weaving through the discs.
An "S" hook clasp and extender chain finished with a fine chain tassel.
The heavy gold tone oval links are joined by fold over double links.
Necklace length 16.1/2 inch and 1.1/4 inch deep. Bracelet 7 inch long.
Although unsigned this set bears all the design features of pieces made by Henkel & Grosse for both Dior and Schiaparelli. The "S" hook clasp, chain tassel, heavy oval link construction and the double foldover links are all hallmarks of work by Henkel & Grosse. On balance we believe this to be designed for Christian Dior.
In excellent vintage condition.
