Fabulous 1970's Vintage Valentino Lapis, Pearl and Gold Bead Lariat Necklace
Faux pearls, not sure if it is lapis, probably sodalite to simulate lapis, or maybe blue ceramic, so pretty... and gorgeous gold tone beads.
Blue beads are cold to touch.
Gorgeous tassels with gold beads, blue beads and pearls.
Great condition, some of the gold beads have a little patina, but mostly nice and golden.
The full length of the Lariat is 52 inches,
I guess wearable length would be about 42 inches if it is looped or tied.
Beautiful difficult to find design
These beads are so beautiful, you can see it in the pretty layering and the variety of shapes.
This necklace looks great alone or could be worn with companion necklaces.
I have some available. See photos for other fab Valentino or Lanvin necklaces that could be layered.
Excellent never worn condition. Original paper hang tag
Please check my listings for companion Valentino Logo Chain pieces, other necklaces, earrings and bracelet.
Very good size and very wearable. New Old Stock so Very, Very Good Vintage condition,
Original Tags on each piece and the earrings are hallmarked with the Lanvin Paris cartouche.
Please look carefully at the photo with the medallions near the earrings and you will see the Lanvin Logo design.
It is stunning on. Lovely for dress up or casual wear, so very versatile and Classic Style.
All the medallions 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 80 pieces of Lanvin Paris 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 perfectly.
Please see the companion pieces to verify identical design elements.
Please see the photos.
Please look carefully at photos as photos are considered part of the description.
Valentino is a Fashion Icon, this type of Vintage Valentino rarely surfaces in its entirety or in this original new condition.

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.
