These were salesman samples/old stock so it probably got lost somehow,
also I have Many other pieces from this buy out that have original hantags and plaques, those are in a separate listing.
Both also have a small signature type dangle at the fold over clasp which I believe was unique to Lanvin.
Very good size and very wearable.

Original Tags even had the description and the original Wholesale price on them, WOW
It is stunning on.
Unbelievable to find these matching pieces.
These are from a 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 50-75 piece collection.
I also was able to purchase about 40 pieces of Valentino New Old Stock as well with original tags.
Look for those listings in my shop, these pieces will go quickly as they are very rarely available.
Please see the photos. It is impossible to capture the beauty of this piece.
The feel of the genuine materials is amazing.
This necklace is very eye catching.
I have also included a photo of the necklace paired with another necklace from this collection.
Wearing them together would be a fabulous statement look.

A little bit about Lanvin
Founded in 1889, Lanvin is considered Paris’ oldest couture house, and yet is still to this day its most iconic.
Legendary designer Jeanne Lanvin built a fashion empire, perhaps the first of its kind.
By the 1920s Lanvin had already expanded into home décor, fur goods, menswear, fragrances, and jewelry, all of which were shockingly modern to the French establishment.
Lanvin’s designs of then, as now, looked toward contemporary art for inspiration and often incorporated Deco modernist motifs as.
In the late 1960s, Lanvin produced a series of carved plastic pendants on chains in the style of pop art, and today they are still very popular.
Other collections were inspired by historic elegance and reflect a more Renaissance, Byzantine or Etruscan look.
Traditionally, the brand “Lanvin” is synonymous with amazing, gorgeous, original fashion jewelry.
For more than a century, the unique Lanvin brand produced huge numbers of costume jewelry designs renowned throughout the world.
The quality and sophistication of the Lanvin line is timeless, as shown in this beautiful Byzantine inspired parure.
Lanvin will serve as a talisman of 20th century luxury fashion.
