This vintage Vendome necklace is like nothing we've ever seen; it was really love at first sight.
This is a very dramatic, chic necklace that looks completely couture and runway worthy.
This is from Vendome's "Bolder Than Gold Line" circa 1960s.
It has that combination of unique elegance and high drama that just makes your heart race.
In the early 1940s Vendome was established as a subsidiary of the already world-renowned jewelry company, Coro.
It would increase in popularity in the 1960s, gaining a reputation for using the highest quality imported materials and crystals.
Vendome jewelry continues to be highly collectible today, boasting an aesthetic characterized by glamour, whimsy, and singular elegance.
This necklace is characterized by a shimmering gold-tone branch-like design.
Long, spiky pendants dangle from two rigid "branches" in the front while two long pieces on the sides make it articulate beautifully around the neck.
The skinny pendants hang at different lengths forming a gorgeous bib-style look.
The gold-tone metals have a slightly textural finish, giving the necklace a slightly more organic look and feel.
The necklace joins with a classic fold-over clasp. This is where you will find the "©Vendôme" mark dating post 1955.
The necklace shows barely any wear and remains in outstanding vintage condition.
