Vintage Reinad curb chain collar necklace and matching climber baguette rhinestone earrings are being offered for your consideration. The set is excellent vintage condition appearing as if it were seldom if ever worn; white spots are from the photographer's lighting.
Reinad of New York City was in business from 1922 until the mid-1950's. They produced few designs under their own name, but were a jobber / wholesale facility producing jewelry for many of the high end names you will recognize: Boucher, Carnegie and Eisenberg, to name just a few. In 1941, their first retail pieces were produce under the name Chanel Novelty Co. and have became some of the rarest and most sought after of all costume jewelry (Chanel in script). Coco Chanel sued and won a case against them that same year for name infringement. The company changed its name to Reinad Novelty Company; still continuing to produce only a very few high quality pieces under the signature Reinad. Fred Rezazadeh in his book 'Costume Jewelry' stated "If you see a piece of Reinad jewelry you like, try to buy it, for you will not get a second chance." It is always on our hunt list!
The curb style chains in this necklace are soldered together to form a three row necklace 15 1/2 inches long by 3/4 inch wide with a signed, Reinad, fold over clasp. The earrings are a large 1 3/4 inch long using a larger same style curb link chain; they climb and seductively hug the outline, outside of your ear with the clear white baguette rhinestones in a row on the inside of the chain; a very feminine sexy set! Very little if any finish wear is noted and the metal finish is bright and shiny front and back. The rhinestones appear original and are bright and sparkling, none are dull or dead; on close inspection of the stones some desirable light age appropriate peppering can be noted. This beautiful, classic and classy set is sure to become a mainstay in your wardrobe accessories collection for many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles to come! (K6043)
