Finding a necklace and earrings set by Coppola E Toppo is like climbing the jewelry mountain top...exhilarating. The brother and sister team of Bruno Coppola and Lyda Toppo started the jewelry company in the late 1940s in Milan Italy. They produced works for Parisian fashion houses Dior, Balenciaga, Schiaparelli and then Italian couturiers Gucci, Pucci, and Valentino. And when they finally created jewelry under their own brand name, everyone wanted it.
This signed set includes a fantastic two strand necklace and clip back earrings, using Murano jet black faceted beads.
The necklace has big round beads in the center (about 20mm) that are clusters of the smaller black beads woven around a fibrous center. With a magnifier, you can see the textile fibers between each bead which adds interesting texture and contrast to the big bead. (We're not bead experts but we've never seen anything like these.)
The necklace measures 19 inches around, ending in the secure hookover clasp which is signed MADE IN ITALY BY COPPOLA E TOPPO. Necklace measures 2 inches wide at center strands.
The matching earrings are round 1 inch clips. They incorporate the jet black beads with several other beads that mimic the effect of the contrast in the necklace. Each earring back is also signed. The clips are strong and secure.
Slight minor wear to the back of one of the clasp halves. Overall, this rare Coppola demi parure is in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1960s.
It's hard to top the drama of the glossy black, the quality of these jewels, the impact of the name...Coppola E Toppo.
