This is a stunning piece of vintage costume jewelry. We acquired an entire estate of a wealthy lady who lived her entire life here in Los Angeles. She had mostly all designer clothing & jewelry. Her daughter told us she worked in the movie industry behind the scenes and that she wore this choker to one of the Academy Awards shows in the 60's. It's stamped "Chanel Made In France". We took it to Chanel but they told us they do not do authenticating on any items ever, but when we asked if it was possible from the looks of this that it could be real she said absolutely but company policy will not let them put it in writing. We also called their corporate number & they told us the same thing. This vintage necklace stands on it's own for sheer style & quality. It's heavy & well made. It feels substantial in your hand. Made of glass stones, metal backs, thin black leather on the bottom & a soft velvety fabric on the top side. It ties for a closure. We priced it as if it were not labeled at all.
The largest center stone is a little over 1" tall & 3/4" wide.
Total length: 33" end to end - length of row of stones 8.5"
Condition Details: No scratches. No broken or chipped stones. Only minor wear to the leather from use.
