This Vendome necklace and earring set is ready to go anywhere! The opera length necklace can be worn in one long strand for a flapper era look or wound around twice two add drama to your neck line. The black, glass beads alternate medium to large size with rhinestone studded spheres interspersed. The dome shaped clip earrings repeat the rhinestone disco ball pattern. It manages to look both fun and tres chic simultaneously - not an easy feat! This is a classic Vendome set, incorporating their top notch use of beads into fabulous designs.
Measurements: The single strand is an opera length 43.5 inches with a push-in clasp. The beads are approximately 7mm and 13mm. The balls vary in size, with the largest 17mm. The clip earrings are 7/8 inch in diameter.
Condition: The set is good vintage condition. The clear rhinestones are quite bright. Most of the balls are missing several rhinestones, which are very hard to spot as the setting has a reflective backing that looks very much like the rhinestones. The black glass beads show minor scuffing and flea bites. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: The necklace is unsigned; each clip earring has "Vendome" stamped on the clip. They are clearly a matching set. This mid-century set was probably one of head designer Helen Marion, whose main focus was the amazing bead jewelry. Vendome was Coro's high end jewelry division.
