Adjustable Bib Chandelier Pendant Statement Necklace
Vendome was a high-quality line that succeeded Corocraft, in business from 1944 to 1979, operating as a subsidiary of Coro. The name origins in Parisian jewelry trade center Place de Vendome, specialized in the production of luxury jewelry for the rich clientele. Indeed, the jewelry designers used high quality materials, such as rock crystal from Austria and Czechoslovakia, sparkling artificial pearls and enamels, metal with gold or silver plated, clear and colored perspex. In 1953, the company separated from Coro, and existed until 1979. Vendome jewelry was made with brilliant, high-quality European stones and beads in delightfully unique designs with rich enameling and some with articulating pieces like this beautiful pendant necklace.

The necklace is a twisted rope design (9″L on each end) and has a sturdy, hook clasp (also signed VENDOME) on a 3″L adjustable chain finished with a gorgeous gold Fleur de Lis charm on the end.
