Amazing Vintage Diane Von Fürstenberg Necklace
Light Amethyst Round Lucite orbs attached to original Gold tone chain from the 1970's
We know these are 1970's as the clasp is still a spring ring,
the clasps changed to Lobster clasp style in the 1980's
The Faceted Orb is 1.75 across and .75 thick.
Faulous New Old Stock, New with original Tags.
This necklace is 28 Inches wearable length.
This Chain is wonderful, gorgeous timless style link, great genuine gold look finish.
The crystal Lucite Orbs are substantial 1/5 inches long and 1.25 inches long
Gorgeous, these look like genuine crystal, but are high quality Lucite
Please see the video to see how beautifully sparkling they are, they look like crystal,
but are a very high quality Lucite, DVF only used the highest quality materials.
This was apparently part of a collection as I also got some of these round orbs on chain in other colors.
I have included a photo of those in this listing,
this listing is only for one necklace, the Light Amethyst Color Necklace.
the other photos are for reference.
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.
These pieces of DVF 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 piece collection of DVF, this is one of the first I will be listing..
I also was able to purchase about 60 pieces of Valentino, around 60 pieces of Lanvin, some YSL
and assorted 1970's-80's designers, All New Old Stock as well with original tags.
