Offering a vintage Lanvin necklace that holds true to the Lanvin reputation of chic and classy. This necklace, circa 1970's -1980's, was made in Paris and is as exciting and sophisticated as the day it was created. Lanvin is one of the most famous and the oldest fashion house in France. They remain a huge influence in fashion today and their items are highly collectible. This particular necklace is choker length measuring 16 1/2" long. There are double strands of dainty serpentine chain attached to the main medallion which is in the middle. The chain is gold plated and it has a rich look to it. At both ends of the serpentine chain there is a double link chain that serves as an extender. There is a foldover clasp that is the closing mechanism. I do not know if this is original to the chain or whether it was a modification done at a later date. The middle medallion is what this necklace is all about. It is a large square that has curved lines (is there a name for this shape?). It measures 1 1/2"w x 1 1/2"h x 1/4"d. Three plus sides are enameled in a rich glossy black enamel color. The bottom part is covered in a pave style with sparkling rhinestone Swarovski crystals. There are four rows of crystals with the bottom row having 9 stones and 4 on the top. The pave section is defined by a thick gold accent on each side. THe crystals shine and are brilliant. The entire piece is tubular and this gives the piece dimension and depth. There is a tiny chip of the enameling at the very bottom but because of its placement, it can't be seen. THere are no other issues with this piece. The LANVIN Paris cartouche is on the underside of the medallion. The juxtaposition of the tender chain against the bold modernistic style of the medallion works wonders. The necklace is chic, classy and sophisticated. It is sure to elicit attention and compliments. Perfect for that special night out! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE COndition
