Wow, this amazing bib necklace and earrings set by brother sister team,Coppola e Toppo, is truly one of the classiest faux pearl creations on the planet! Don't bother layering your pearls with your little black dress to achieve the Chanel look, this parure has trumped that combo. Graduated strand after strand of alternating baroque pearls and faceted clear crystals are very cleverly woven onto a crystal lattice from the front to the rear (with nylon) creating the signature Coppola e Toppo swag bib. The swag culminates in the gorgeous beaded and golden set 'hearts', and on the back of one is the signature "Made in Italy by Coppola e Toppo". The elegant earrings are a perfectly diminutive complement to the wonderful scale of the necklace. An all around masterful and enviable creation making an oh-so-incredible statement when worn.
Condition: Nearly excellent to excellent vintage condition; No loss to the pearls and the crystals are smooth and sparkling. (Note: due to the weight of these monumental necklaces, they are typically constructed with some plastic beads as well). Gold finish loss to the back of the 'heart-shaped clasps', but not a distraction. Very small amount of verdigris on the outer edges of the clasps (and possibly the bead wiring) which is noticeable on close examination only.
Necklace measures 15" from beaded cap end to end; 17 1/2" wearable length with the extender. The bib measures 2" at it's widest when hanging around the neck. Clip earrings measure 1" around.
