Little is know about the Jeanne company other than it appears to have been active in the late 1950s through the 1960s. Production was limited rendering examples rare. Much of the surviving work includes large, bold designs, often featuring coat of arms / heraldic or figural / floral themed brooches and pendant necklaces. The pendant necklace presented, circa 1960s, in an antiqued brass tone, employs multilink bilateral chains suspended with three stations of highly textured designs, the center featuring an oval marbled purple cabochon surrounded by either thistle or acorn details. The bottom station includes three blossom embossed dangles. If you like your vintage pendant necklaces extra long and lean, this Jeanne's for you.
The necklace is a wearable fixed 18 1/2 inches with a spring ring closure. The pendant dangles an incredible, additional 8 1/4 inches. Maximum width is about 1 3/4 inches. Purple cab is approximately 25 millimeters x 18 millimeters x 12 millimeters high. Weight of the necklace is approximately 66 grams.
