We have recently come across a massive quantity of all signed EUGENE jewelry. An absolutely delightful and rare opportunity to get your hands on some very hard to find pieces!
This is a fabulous vintage necklace which was made and signed by EUGENE.
The necklace features two strands comprised of perfect faceted white crystals. The clasp features a white rectangular glass bead.
The necklace measures 18 1/2" long using the innermost strand closest to the neck. The necklace is heavy and very well made.
Great info on EUGENE, the designer...
Eugene Schultz once worked for Miriam Haskell, but had his own business, Eugene Jewelry Co., and designed his own line of costume jewelry for about 10 years, beginning in 1962. Prior to that he had worked as a costumer most notably for the Perry Como Show.
Eugene jewelry pieces often had very decorative clasps. Eugene pieces were also handmade and they looked similar to Miriam Haskell pieces as they were all hand wired to filigree frames and used the same components and materials.
