We've never seen a Vendome necklace we didn't like. That's because the company started as Coro's top-of-the-range line and evolved into their own brand name that put the emphasis on quality materials, excellent craftsmanship and creative designs. Their jewelry is always extraordinary.
This gorgeous necklace and earrings set is circa 1950s. It's a unique compilation of blue enameled metal, large and small faceted crystal beads, and clear crystal rhinestone 'buds'.
The necklace measures 17 inches around by 3/4 inch wide at the rhinestoned orbs. The silver-plated slide-in clasp is textured and set with tiny rhinestones, some of which are out from handling the clasp. Since the clasp is in the back and the stones are tiny, this is not noticeable without a magnifier.
The matching clip-back earrings measure 7/8 by 1 1/8 inches. They have lovely silver-plated filigree backs. Each is marked VENDOME. The necklace is unmarked but it's clearly the mate to the earrings. There's slight age-appropriate wear to the blue enamel visible through a magnifier. Overall, the set is in excellent vintage condition.
