Massive Faux Pearl and Emerald Sautoir Necklace, Chanel

About

Pearl and Emeralds. This elegant and classic combination takes on a different effect when supersized to this proportion. Chanel sticks to her established idioms and uses 3 strands of off-shaped and baroque pearls and beads for this massive sautoir interpreted for her by Gripoix.
Each pearl and emerald pate de verre bead is hand formed and wire wrapped for strength. Some of the flawed emerald beads have been fluted before cooling and some have been left round. The nonchalance of this is genius. These beads are quite heavy and also very striking...as are the earrings.
UNSIGNED 32" to 38" lengths. Earrings: 3"
