DESCRIPTION: We just had to accessorize this dramatic vintage Napier Necklace after we curated the amazing Crown Trifari earrings. The colors seemed right, the style of the earrings softened the geometric necklace, and together the pair shouted “Summer is finally here!”

The vintage Napier necklace is fantastic and features 40 graduated faux pearls with 10 gold tone separators. The pearls boast a soft ivory sheen against shiny gold tone. The main attraction is a large coral colored pendant of lucite, with faux teardrop pearl in bezel setting.

This fashionable gold tone costume jewelry necklace is of a very nice weight and classic design. The faux pendant is 1-1/2 x 1-1/2” in geometric shape and a very moderne feature of this vintage Napier necklace.

The Crown Trifari earrings are of dogwood flower in coral colored enamel with inset faux pearl with gold tone bezel accent. The edges are rimmed in gold tone with detailed leaves to add flair and interest to the flower. The earrings are for pierced ears.

Together, this pair is exceptional in every detail and fine craftsmanship. Alone, the Napier necklace may have been classed as a fashion statement with a bit of glitz and glam. Worn with the Trifari earrings, the statement goes beyond classic pearls and places emphasis on warm summer nights and breezes carrying the scent of fresh garden florals.

And we love options…The Napier necklace will look wonderful with simple pearl or gold earrings. The Trifari earrings will take on a new look with your most simple gold necklace.

Napier Company was one of the first modern corporations in the United States, founded in 1898 in W. Attleboro MA. The company designed and manufactured silverware, gilt and silver plated jewelry. In the 1920s, Napier produced costume jewelry excelling in metalwork accented in faux stones and simple geometric shapes. The company was sold in 1999.

WHY I LIKE IT: Vintage costume jewelry necklace is always fashionable. It may be a nod to the past but a very deliberate nod that redefines moderne. We especially love the design combination of two of the most highly respected and admired firms in the costume jewelry industry.
