This vintage Vendome set is a delightful dichotomy of jewelry design. While the necklace has a big, bold statement-size look, it's actually a whisper of construction.
Made of lacy links of enameled white metal snowflake or flower shapes, the necklace is feather light. Your neck is safe from its gravitational pull while it pulls in plenty of compliments. The necklace measures 16 inches end to end by 5 1/2 inches long at center.
The matching earrings have a clip and screw back combination for maximum comfort. They're a cluster of dangling flakes that measure 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches.
The fishhook clasp of the necklace is marked VENDOME. This costume jewelry company started out as Coro's top-of-the-line designer and became its own big name for innovative designs and high-end craftsmanship. This set is circa 1960.
