Vendome, a division of Coro, was known for their high end beaded jewelry. This necklace set is one of their best examples. The same necklace in blue can be found on the cover of Marcia Brown's book on Coro Jewelry, plus on page 177, in this color . She describes the bakelite butterscotch beads as "gift box" since they are wrapped with brown beads and topaz montee rhinestones. There are also topaz and jonquil faceted Austrian crystals. The matching clip earrings have the same beads.
This set is in excellent condition, it looks like it was hardly worn. The necklace measures 22 inches long, the earrings are 1.75 inches long. Only the earrings are signed Vendome.
