Coppola e Toppo Red Fringe Necklace
I am obsessed with Coppola e Toppo. I like all of the jewelry that I have collected....some more than others and CeT is one of my favorites. I was enthralled with them from my very first "find" and finding Coppola e Toppo pieces was difficult. Then Deanna Farneti Cera wrote the book "COPPOLA E TOPPO FASHION JEWELS" in 2009. The pictures of their pieces from 1940-1970 were all the encouragement I needed to search out more of them.........how could I resist after seeing all those beautiful pictures? If you like colorful and intricately beaded pieces, I highly recommend it. There is also a lot of history about the brother-sister team from Milan who were "Coppola e Toppo."
This is a very bright and flirty necklace. It is made with hundreds of red faceted crystal beads, some woven to mimic "fringe". It is signed and a very generous length of 15.75" with a 2.5" extender. It is in excellent condition
