Christian Dior 1959 Vintage Three-Row Glass Bead Necklace

A pretty and evocative piece by Christian Dior. This necklace was created in 1959. 

Condition Report:

Very Good - A little surface wear to the faux pearls on the clasp and slight darkening to the clear beads on the clasp. This is only visible upon close inspection and does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

A Short History...

Examples of Christian Dior jewellery from the 1950s and 1960s, such as this necklace, are 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 Gross√© - 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 necklace is a must have indeed. 

Wear it With...

A classic piece, this necklace works well with any form of style - it would look exceptional with a little black dress, but also works well with a denim shirt.
