Fabulous vintage necklace in gunmetal gray with brilliant openbacked topaz crystal stones. Circa 1950, French. A possible Roger Jean-Pierre piece based on the design, the stones and metal, and the construction. With a lacy leaf and branch motif. Also with a slide clasp with
a very large matching stone. Articulated to drape smoothly and comfortably, with the side sections encircling the neck and the center section dropping right at the collarbone. (It is not
draping properly on my necklace form but is perfect on a human neck.) The color is much clearer than the photos depict.
Wearable length is 14 1/2 inches; the center section drops 2
inches. Excellent condition. Photos enlarged to show detail.
