A wonderful example of the beautiful beaded ropes Vogue became so popular for in the 1950s. Six strands of shades of blue, all glass beads. Just stunning. The decorated clasp has a 2.5" extender so the necklace can be adjusted to your comfort level. The matching clip earrings are done in the same blue-green seed beads surrounding a blue faceted bead in the center.
Size: Necklace: 17 inches including extender; Clip Earrings: .8 inches; Condition is excellent; Circa: 1950s
Starting out as a jewelry house that outfitted the millinery and couturier trades, Vogue jewelry was founded in 1936 by Harold Shapiro, Jack Gilbert and George Grant. When the Vogue jewelry company created an American flag pin for the hat company Mr. John, Vogue jewelry surged in popularity. Thriving in the 1950s, Vogue introduced Austrian crystals and beaded ropes to American womens jewelry boxes. The Shapiros were the first to leave the company in 1962 and the company eventually closed a decade later.
