The fashion house Lanvin is the oldest fashion house in France. They excel in creating couture designs and their jewelry often is edgy and modernistic. However, they also designed more conventional and classic pieces. All items were and still are subjected to Madame Lanvin's strict code of standards. In essence every piece is just gorgeous! This piece is no exception. It is a large and unusual floral pendant that hangs from a unique mesh chain. I do not know whether the mesh chain is original to the piece but I do know that it works and compliments the statement pendant. The pendant is a stylized version of a flower. It is circular with irregular rounded edges. The shape is not flat and has some depth to it. It is very soft and "gentle" looking. The enameling is thick giving the piece a slightly dimension appearance. The enameling is done in a dusty pink color (a shade darker than pink). The petals are outlined in gold. The masterstroke of the piece is the small faux pearls that flow downwards from the top of the flower. These pearls are also defined in gold lines and there is a smattering of small gold beads throughout. Again depth is achieved. These faux pearls are feminine and add the crowning touch to the piece. The back is a textured gold tone metal and the "Lanvin Paris" cartouche is affixed there. There is a large open space at the top of the flower. The antiqued gold ,almost bronze colored, mesh is attached to the pendant. It is beautifully knotted to the piece. Looks like it was professionally done so I believe it may be original to the piece. The mesh is 3/4" wide. It is dainty and bold at the same time. The necklace closes with a barrel shaped push in clasp. The mesh alone has a drop of 16". The pendant measures 3"w x 3"h. The entire piece is 18 1/2"long. The piece is in great shape without mention of issues. This is a very unusual Lanvin piece. It is a beautifully crafted piece of floral jewelry. Yet the extraordinary combination of the pendant and the mesh give it a little "edgy" vibe. That's what Lanvin is all about! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
