This beautiful necklace was made by Maison Gripoix for the legendary couture house of Coco Chanel. It has a dramatic look that is perfect for any season. It is 18" long and has center medallion measuring 3 1/2" long x 3 1/2" wide. The bow medallion is made from gilt brass with a center red Gripoix glass chiclet stone surrounded by dozens of clear rhinestones. The flanking sides have 16mm x 20mm oval glass pearls and the center drop is 18mm x 36mm. It is signed "Chanel Made in France" on the reverse, and it is in excellent condition. This is one of several pieces from a very high end couture collection. Please see my "couture" category for other pieces.
