Offered for sale today is this two-strand signed Vendome necklace from the early 1960's with the mist incredible beads. There are emerald green Swarovski crystals, little amber flat crystal spacers, tiny black and orange glass spacers, and five of the most spectacular beads I've ever seen - they are 18mm oblong beads that are pieced together in angular sections of clear, green, and black glass in an abstract art mid-century design.
The necklace measures 17 1/2" long, but may be hooked shorter with the flower topped hook and crystal chain closure. It is marked Vendome on the hook. It is in excellent condition, and the only flaw I see is one side of the closure has little rhinestones and the other side does not, so this may be an old repair, but it is not distracting.
