You know Volupte for it's quality compacts, cigarette cases and miniaudieres. For a short period, most likely in the '50s, the company produced a very limited supply of jewelry. Pieces are extremely rare. Cody's is proud to present a pendant necklace and single charm bracelet set. The demi features opaque, moss green glass marble like beads infused with glittery copper / bronze colored flecks. All beads have wonderful golden spiral caps -- a twist of mid century modern. Large round pendant and charm beads include cutout four leaf clover petals extending from spiral caps. Bracelet and necklace utilize multi link gold tone chains to connect and secure. Necklace employs hook style and a two glass ball charmed extension chain. Bracelet secures with a spring ring closure - thumb tab type.
The necklace is adjustable to about 17 1/2 inches with hook style closure and two glass ball charmed extension tail. Pendant provides an additional 1 1/2 inches. The large glass bead is approximately 18 millimeters. Bilateral chain oblong beads are about 12 millimeters x 9 millimeters. The single large charm bracelet (so popular during this period) is a fixed approximate 7 1/2 inches with spring ring clasp (thumb tab type). The 17 millimeter charm dangles about 1 1/4 inches. Weight of the bracelet and necklace is approximately 66 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components appear original and are intact. All glass beads free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Nice coppery golden flecks throughout. Gold tone finishes intact. Some minor age commensurate gold tone wear to necklace bilateral chains. Closures / clasps secure. No damage / no repairs.
The necklace is signed on it's original metal hangtag in block caps: "VOLUPTE'". The bracelet is not signed but is a definite part of the set.
