Chanel Multistrand Necklace, 1950's.

About

Chanel multi chain pearl, emerald and ruby handmade glass collar. Designed by Gripoix mid 1950s to look as though each strand is casually wrapped around the neck, a part of the Chanel idiom of an instictive effortless elegance.

16-19" lengths, 2.5" width

Many necklaces from the period become available in these wonderfully crude metal tones, not with the hypergilding used today. This heightens and reinforces the baroque aspect of the jewel as prescribed by Chanel's rich aesthetic.
