Unsigned Italian necklace, probably by Baroness Luciana Aloisi de Reutern, who designed for Gucci and Elizabeth Arden and also exported directly to
the United States. Circa 1965. It has dimensional "molten" looking articulated sections with a hook and chain at the back, and brilliant very large glass
stones in aqua, chartreuse, and yellow. The emerald cut stones are unfoiled and openbacked. The photos do not capture the brilliance and quality of the
stones. Several of the emerald cut stones at the top are faux alexandrite and change from blue to lavender depending on the light. The metal is goldtone
with a uniformly darkened finish. The surface of the metal is very finely textured. There are small regular marks on some of the chain links; they may say
Italy; I have another very similar Luciana necklace listed which is clearly marked Italy.
Wearable length is 15 inches. 1 3/8 inches wide at center.
Excellent condition. Photos enlarged to show detail.
