Outstanding vintage rhinestone and pearl bid collar necklace perfect for a bridal gown. This is truly an amazing high fashion necklace incorporating luminescent faux pearls which cast lovey hues of color, brilliant cut and baguette rhinestones in an intricate and dramatic design. The pearls and some of the baquettes are hinged which creates movement. Note the great design in the center which falls beautifully between the bust line. There is an extra length of rhinestones with a hook catch for extra length or to shorten. Perfect for evening wear with plunging neckline, strapless dress, or over a Sharon Stone type black top and evening skirt or dress pants. I currently have it displayed as a piece of art. Mannequin not being sold with this necklace. Great Necklaces
CONDITION: The stones are in excellent condition as are the pearls with no discoloration whatsoever. The back is rhodium plated and also in excellent condition.
SIZE: The plunges 17 1/2 inches from the neckline. The wonderful center piece is an amazing 7 inches long.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
