A vintage faux pearl necklace by Christian Dior would be exciting enough but this one had a bit of a 'transformation'. We took it to our former jewelry designer friend (she created jewelry for everything from Disney to TV and films to print). We wanted her to restring this and clean the rhinestone rondelles which had some age tarnish. Wow...Dior never looked better.
The three strand necklace which has been close to a choker length, was lengthened with 56 genuine natural angel skin coral beads tucked in among the pearls. One larger angel skin coral bead is in the midst of the gold-tone centerpiece with faux pearl balls and dangling teardrops. The rondelles are bright and sparkling again. The necklace is now long enough to wear comfortably. It's a stunning showpiece.
The necklace measures 17 1/4 inches and can be clasped along the extending chain from 15 to 17 inches. It's about 7/8 inch wide at the three strands together. The centerpiece is about 1 1/2 inches across by 2 inches high.
Both the secure foldover clasp and the chain have the ~ CD ~ Chr. Dior Germany logo. The necklace is in excellent, restrung and rejuvenated condition. It will continue to be a classic smash hit for many years to come.
