SUPERBLY DESIGNED AND CRAFTED EUROPEAN COUTURE JEWELRY
From my personal collection-- Designed by the renown West German designer company, Henkel and Grosse , this is an exceptional and an elegant piece of couture costume jewelry.
Exquisitely molded, ivory color, domed Lucite free form triangle is set on a concave gold-tone, textured metal base . Floating inside it, held by three studs, is a smaller, identical free form golden metal base. The base is generously paved with clear Swarovski crystals . The three corners of the perfect imitation ivory Lucite frame are co-joined by golden metal inserts paved with clear crystals. This beautiful center piece is attached, at upper ends, with gold metal, leaf design, paved clasps, to a superbly crafted flexible domed gold-tone mesh necklace. A delicate link chain extender adjusts the necklace’s length . The closure clasps, designed in the signature shape of letter “G” ,also bear the hallmark Grosse signature.
The simple elegance of this necklace, combined with its unusual and modern design, is timeless and would be a welcome addition to a Grosse jewelry collection or a favorite go-to couture fashion accessory.
