A fabulous vintage early 1980's Chanel, Maison Gripoix, Sautoir Necklace with huge ruby Gripoix glass pendant/brooch and Gripoix glass pearl drop.

The single row chased gold tone linked chain is wired with ruby, emerald and pearl Gripoix glass beads. - the favourite combination of Chanel.A large ring bolt clasp secures. From the chain is suspended a magnificent detachable ruby Gripoix glass pendant/ brooch and from that a Gripoix glass pearl drop.

The sautoir is marked with a Chanel cartouche to one ruby Gripoix bead and dated 1983; a cartouche to the Gripoix pearl drop dated 1984; and marked to the back of the ruby Gripoix pendant with earlier (1960's) CHANEL impressed mark beneath the bail. The ruby Gripoix drop has both a bail and rollover pin so that it can be detached and worn as a brooch.

This stunning Gripoix pendant is one of the largest single pieces of Gripoix glass that we have come across and the colour is a simply wonderful rich claret red.

It is likely that the earlier pendant was attached to the necklace by a previous owner. This is not unusual and the whole ensemble is a faithful representation of Chanel's Gripoix creations.

A similar necklace is seen worn by Chanel on many occasions and was undoubtedly a favourite. (See Jewelry by Chanel, Patrick Mauries, Pages 132, 133 1nd 136.

Length of necklace is 18 inch and additional drop of pendant and pearl is 5.1/4 inch.

In superb vintage condition.
