If you can't come to the 'Sunshine State' of Florida, we can send some Palm Beach Florida sunshine your way in the form of this fun bauble necklace designed by Lilly Pulitzer.
It's a long goldtone link chain and at its center are seven dangling chains with white resin tubes, faux turquoise oval stones and textured gilded ball beads.
The necklace is 30 inches long plus 2 inches more of extension chain. The center drops to 6 inches long. It's in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1980s.
(A bit of colorful Lilly history...Everyone knows Lilly for her colorful cotton prints in (mostly) pink, green, blue, and yellow. Her story is a classic tale of 'necessity is the mother of invention'. After 21 year old Lilly eloped with Peter Pulitzer (c. late1950s), they escaped the hustle and bustle of New York City for the sun and sand of Palm Beach. In the shadow of Peter's citrus groves, Lilly opened a juice stand. To disguise the juice stains on her clothing, she had a sleeveless dress made from colorfully-printed cotton. And so the Lilly Pulitzer print dress was born. The classic shift dress shot to international fame and demand when Lilly's old schoolmate...none other than Jacqueline Kennedy nee Bouvier, was photographed wearing a 'Lilly' while on vacation. Jackie's dress was made from kitchen curtain material. The rest is history.
What we need around here is a clothing print to cover spaghetti and pizza sauce stains. Lilly...are you reading this?
