Christian Dior Learned The Virtue Of Simplicity Through Which The True Elegance Must Come .
The exquisite choker necklace and clip on earrings jewelry set offered here fits the above description. It is a statement of an elegant simplicity and of an easy wear. The necklace consists of a rounded edges rectangular center piece which is suspended from a highly polished , premier 18 KT gold plated designer C Link Chain. The center piece , a slightly domed rounded edges rectangular, is layered with three graduated , nestled, rectangular shapes. The outer layer has channel set brilliant square clear crystals surrounded by high polished golden metal. Within it, a high quality black epoxy enamel layer frames the center layer which is paved with luminous prong set tiny clear crystals. The upper edges of the center piece are topped with two , crystal encrusted prongs which are attached to the chain and cover it. The chain has the signature Dior (C-D) folding clasp.
The clip-on earrings mirror the design of the two inner layers of the center piece and are identical to them both in size and construction. The outer side of the earring clip is marked Chr. Dior.

VINTAGE AND CONDITION: This exquisite set was gifted to me in the mid-1990’s , but I think that it was made in the late 1980’s, since I had owned a pair of much larger earrings, of a similar design, which I purchased in 1988. The set is new and had never been worn. It is in an excellent vintage condition. It will be shipped in a DIOR jewelry gift box.
About Maison Dior (The House of Dior): (1946-Present) A sheer, yet understated, elegance and clean lines underscore the opulence and the splendor of Christian Dior jewelry. It is highly treasured because it reflects femininity and artistry and is crafted from the highest quality materials. Most of the Dior pieces (1950-2005) were designed by the House of Henkel & Grosse of Germany, eventually taken over by The House of Dior in 2005. Christian Dior jewelry is highly treasured, one of the most valuable on the market today and a good investment for collectors of vintage jewelry. Christian Dior (1905-1957) founded the Maison Dior in 1946, having begun his designing career with Robert Piguet in 1937 and his NEW LOOK collection of 1947 made him an international fashion icon. His New Look style has had a lasting influence on the fashion world ever since and it continues well into the 21st century. Today, The House of Dior is a huge international conglomerate, owned by French businessman, Bernard Arnault.
