Very Good - Some rubbing and aging to the plating on the fastening mechanism of the necklace. This does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

This gold plated mesh necklace is detailed at its centre with two rows of claw set, small, round turquoise glass cabachons. It also features two, gold plated panels in a design that resembles rope. The necklace is adjustable in length - it fastens using a bolt ring and an open-link chain, which terminates in a lozenge shaped charm. At its longest length, this necklace is approximately 43cm. The necklace is signed in two places - a panel stamped with 'Gross√©' and a copyright necklace is at one end of the necklace, whilst a panel stamped 'Christian Dior' is positioned at the other end of the necklace. 

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 piece 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 and excellent crafting - this necklace is a must have indeed.
