A Short History...

Examples of Christian Dior jewellery from the 1960s, such as this brooch, are highly collectable. This is particularly because they are often dated with the exact year of their manufacture - a rare treat for costume jewellery enthusiasts. In the case of this piece, the year of its creation was 1968 and this can clearly be seen. Dior's jewellery from the 1960s is also highly collectable because of the bold, stylised and elegant designs highly reminiscent of the era and the House's fashions. Christian Dior jewellery from the period is also of outstanding quality because the man himself insisted upon the house's accessories emulating the quality of its couture. This necklace was designed and produced in Germany for the house by Henkel and Grosse - renowned for their fine craftsmanship and eye for design. Christian Dior only relied upon the most expert producers to create for his company. With its prestigious heritage, beautiful design, excellent crafting and pristine condition - this brooch is a rare, must have indeed.
