Chanel Moghul style emerald ruby glass necklace, 1930s


A shorter, very wearable graduated necklace made by Maison Gripoix for Chanel in the late 1930s. Poured glass melon cut emerald beads are interspersed with several rows of small poured glass ruby beads, and characteristic paste rondelles. This necklace is signed 'Made In France: Depose' on the inside of the paste screw clasp. Not much needs to be said about Coco Chanel, so famous and successful a designer is she! The oldest and probably the most well known workshop of bijoux de haute couture, Maison Gripoix has endured for four generations of the family , their most famous collaborator and customer being Coco Chanel, who started working with Suzanne Gripoix in the 1920s , continuing through until 1969. Known for their technique of imitating mother of pearl, and creating iconic creations in nacre and poured glass, delicate metal and glass flowers being a signature model, as well as the famous ‘lily of the valley’ brooch for Christian Dior. Working with Lanvin, Poiret at the beginning through to Chanel , Dior and many of the 1950s couturiers, Yves Saint Laurent and again to Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs in more recent times.
