Vintage Valentino 1970's Wood and Silk Tassel Necklace Set with matching Earrings
This is a gorgeous long necklace measuring 42 inches of wearable length.
The necklace is comprised of sections of hand carved beads with gilt spacers, wonderful coral colored silk tassels and faceted lemon quartz acrylic beads. The original tag says this necklace was available in Violet, Coral and White. This is the Coral version.
The actual tassel part is 3 inches long, the total dangle is 5.5 inches
The tassels could be trimmed to have a much neater appearance if desired.
Shorter small necklace is not signed but matches so I am including it for layering.
It is the same type materials.
The earrings mimic the design of the necklace and feature the wooden beads and the acrylic faceted beads.
Earrings are clip on and measure 2.25 inches.
Necklace has original paper hang tag, earrings are on the original card.
Very good size and very wearable.
Wear all three pieces or switch up and wear earrings with individual necklaces.
These would also layer well with some of the Lanvin Shell necklaces I have available.
Please look carefully at photos.
New Old Stock so in Excellent Vintage condition,
It is stunning on. Lovely for dress up or casual wear, so very versatile and Classic Style.
All the Stations are in beautiful condition. 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.
This necklace is signed not signed but has the paper hangtag and matches the earrings and bracelet perfectly.
Please see the photos.
This Set is very eye catching.
Please check my other listings for companion sets.
A little bit about Valentino according to Worthpoint
Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti founded the House of Valentino in 1960, according to the Valentino website. The acclaimed fashion house has designed both haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing collections in the ensuing decades, along with various accessories for both men and women.
Jewelry for Valentino was produced by several well-known European costume jewelry firms, including Coppola e Toppo, Hurel, and the Soriano sisters, according to “Costume Jewelry for Haute Couture” by Florence Muller. Many of those pieces were limited creations for runway wear. Jewelry collections accompanying ready-to-wear clothing lines were made as well, particularly in the 1980s and '90s. These are the types of pieces most often found by collectors today.
These pieces are all circa 1970, when Valentino was using the round cartouche and had just begun using the Oval with V logo design on jewelry.
