A fabulous necklace and earring set by Henkel and Grosse for Christian Dior! This bold set features graduated champagne-colored crystals set in pronged silver-tone, open-backed settings. The crystals carry the entire length of the necklace in a riviera style, and the piece secures with a push clasp decorated by a complementary crystal cluster on each side. The crystal earrings match the size of the necklace's largest center crystal, and each has a simple hinged clip to secure it to the ear. The underside of the necklace clasp and the backside of the clip earrings are marked with "MADE IN GERMANY for Christian Dior 19©61" atop a 3-dimensional oval. This gorgeous set is a wonderful example of Dior's classic style and would be a perfect addition to any Dior lover's collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 17" long. The riviera crystals range from slightly more than 5/16" in diameter and 1/4" deep to slightly less than 9/16" and nearly 5/16" deep. The earring crystals measure 9/16" in diameter and are almost 5/16" deep.
Condition: The necklace and earrings are in excellent overall condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the setting. All of the crystals, in both the earrings and necklace, are free of chips and scratches and are securely set. The necklace's push clasp and both earring clips are secure and in good working condition
