"THE POINT OF JEWELRY ISN'T TO MAKE A WOMAN LOOK RICH BUT TO MAKE HER BEAUTIFUL--NOT THE SAME THING" -COCO CHANEL
From my personal collection- The imagination and creativity of the late Joan Rivers find expression in this stunning cascading multi strand chains necklace crafted in a premier 18 KT gold plated metal and bearing testimony to the highest quality and durability of Joan Rivers gold-plated designs. If you have ever observed a waterfall, you would have noticed the water drops of various shapes created by the strength of the cascading water-- larger, smaller, tiny, almost invisible like a mist…..The designer chains of the necklace interpret the variety of the drops’ shapes. Each chain strand is different in shape and in size; each is beautifully textured and all together the chains create an impression of a liquid gold. The magnified pictures accompanying this description are worth a thousand of my words… The longest strand is 32” long, the shortest- 22” long, creating a 6” drip from the center. The 10 strands are affixed at each end to high polish gold toned bars. The necklace has an extender , a lobster claw clasp and a hang tag imprinted with the JOAN RIVERS signature. It will become a go to, elegant, morning-till-night, chic fashion accessory.
It is worth noting that since her passing, Joan Rivers vintage jewelry had dramatically risen in price and collectability.

About Joan Rivers: Much has been written about the late Joan Rivers’ lifer story and her contributions to the fashion jewelry world. In addition to her career as a comedienne, an actress and a TV host, hers is a story of a life-long fine jewelry collector who had translated her passion for and her collection of beautiful and unique jewelry into establishing her own brand of a high end fashion accessories. Endowed with an impeccable taste and a sense of style, she had revived and interpreted the famous American designers of the last century and had created a timeless and contemporary brand of gorgeous and unique line of costume jewelry. My own knowledge of this field had been much enhanced by collecting her jewelry and by delving into the history of American fashion jewelry designers of yesteryear.
