Smokey quartz, taupe and clear glass bead collar, Coppola e Toppo, early 1960s.

About

A beautiful, softly hued necklace, consisting of ten rows of smokey quartz, taupe and clear half crystal faceted beads , in varying sizes, from Coppola e Toppo, from 1962 -64. Ten string-mounted rows are attached to weft - mounting or 'weaving', which runs to the back of the necklace, each side ending in characteristic Coppola e Toppo bead encrusted terminals/closure. A warm and sophisticated colour combination, this necklace is perfect for Autumn/Winter outfits, or even something Summery and light, with careful matching. Bruno and Lydia Coppola created magnificent and highly distinctive jewellery from their workshops in Milan, from the late 1940s, continuing successfully until the mid Seventies. Highly successful in their own right, both in Europe and in particular the USA, with their own lines, they designed many pieces for the haute couture designers such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Valentino, Pucci, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Ken Scott and Roberta di Camerino.
