A design from one of our faves, Christian Lacroix, which, when worn, will make them make a beeline for you! Styled in yellow tone gold metal and scintillating white crystals, the focal point is suspended from a 16 in medium thick snake type chain.
The shape of the pendant, suspended by a jump ring, is roughly a heart, with curlicues facing inward at the top, and curling around the curves below the top. It is 3 in wide and 3 long, inclusive of the decorative "acorn", falling below the heart. The heart is open in the middle, having two of the curlicues swirling inward at the top. Each of the swirls has a huge, bezel set white crystal. Above these, in kind of a leaf shape, are two other pieces, which extend above the top of the heart. These are embedded with a large crystal, flanked by two smaller ones. Looking at it head on, these four elements create a butterfly shape.
Expanding outward, away from the in facing curlicues, on either side, is a trio of the leaf looking pieces, curving downward. These repeat the pattern of a central stone, flanked by smaller ones. Below each of these sides, taking on a Y shape, to complete the heart, these pieces have the central stone, but are flanked by a duo, not a single stone.
Hanging from the bottom of the tip of the Y, is a great replica of an acorn, including the point on the bottom! The cap of the "acorn" is embellished with a stripe, having two medium crystals on either side. It has an integrated ring, from which it is suspended. The tone of the medal has a reddish cast, and has a glossy finish.
The reverse of the pendant has the same finish as the front, with some slight molding, as is found on the "acorn". The reverse of the inward facing curlicues has a large oval cartouche, which has Christian Lacroix at the top of the arc and Made in France at the bottom of same. In between these are the script initials CL.
This stunner is in prime vintage condition. It hails from the 1980's-1990's. You simply have to put it on to get the great impact it produces!
