Condition Report:

Good - A very small area of loss to the surface of one faux pearl. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

A Short History...

In the 1970s, jewellery that would shimmer under a disco ball was essential. This piece would have been the perfect accompaniment to the block coloured maxi dress and glitter platforms that could have been worn at the time of its manufacture. As it's a Dior piece, one could easily imagine this necklace having been worn on the dancefloor at Studio 54. It is highly remeniscent of an era of decadant disco.

Wear it With...

Pay homage to the era in which this necklace was conceived, by wearing it with a jumpsuit and single strap heel.
