This choker necklace consists of double strands of graduated jet black glass beaded separated by crystal spacers and finished with a decorative silver plated box clasp. The black faceted large oval jet black clip earrings have a half halo of crystal rhinestones.. Clearly signed on a plaque on the necklace clasp and on the clip mechanism of each earring, there is no doubt of authenticity. Most Schiaparelli jewelry is signed but occasionally there will be a piece of a set that is not. I mention this because you will see many listings marked unsigned Schiaparelli that are not Schiaparelli. The real deal here! The Schiap box used in the picture is not included but a presentation box will be part of your purchase. Very stylish Schiaparelli vintage.
Size: Necklace: 14.5 inches; Clip Earrings: 1.25 x .75 inches; Condition: Very Good; Circa: 1950s
Known for her use of her signature "shocking pink" color, Elsa Schiaparelli is a giant in the world of couture. Italian by birth and one-time New York City resident, Schiaparelli launched her house of couture in Paris and employed amazingly gifted designers to create her jewelry accessories. To name just a few: Jean Clement, Lyda Coppola and Jean Schlumberger all created custom designs for Schiaparelli. Many of her jewelry designs were imported by D. Lisner & co. Later she licensed her name and the Ralph DeRosa Co. made jewelry for the American market. Elsa Schiaparelli passed away at the age of 83 in Paris in 1973. Everything Schiaparelli is highly collected.
