An important and statement seven row necklace from Coppola e Toppo, Milan, made with their signature bead encrusted clasp, and the unusual element of handwoven beaded 'balls' interspersed through the rows, also made of black beads and pearls. A 'bib' necklace in this same colour combination was made for Yves Saint Laurent in 1962, this necklace being a looser, more freeform design. Highly collectable, and a rare piece, a stylish addition to any collection or wardrobe. Bruno and Lyda 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.
