According to sources, DVF resumed the production of branded jewelry in 2014.
This is one of her early jewelry designs.
These are from a Wholesale Boutique I bought in Atlanta, I believe the owner kept these because they were Samples.
Many were on original velvet boards and the tags have the original wholesale prices and descriptions of what colors were available.
I purchased a large approximately 100-200 piece collection of DVF, this is one of the first I will be listing..
I also was able to purchase about 40 pieces of Valentino, around 40 pieces of Lanvin, some YSL
and assorted 1970's-80's designers, All New Old Stock as well with original tags.
This necklace features a horizontal "totem" pole, but it looks like Aztec heads on the top.
The Totem centerpiece has some wire caged dangles, most likely "mexican jade" aka Agate, carnelian, and other agates.
Fab matching Pierced earrings.
Wearable length of necklace is 24 inches.
The Totem measures 3 inches wide and 4 inches long including the dangles.
The earrings are approx 1 Inch squarish.
Beautiful Gold Tone finish, excellent new condition, earrings are still on the original card.
I have searched all over to compare this set or try to determine if there were any other pieces, I can't find any available so it was probably relatively limited production.
