Vintage Alice Caviness Gold & Silver Modernist Jewelry Set - Demi Parure #A105

Regular price $45.00
This is a wonderful modernist jewelry set from Alice Caviness!

This fabulous set dates to the 1960s and it has that big and bold, Lanvin style that was so popular at the time! The set features a very thick silver snake chain with a huge double teardrop-shaped pendant. The inner drop is finished in shiny gold and the outer drop is finished in brushed silver. The drops are suspended from a long brushed silver tube bail and hang in doorknocker fashion. The matching earrings repeat the double doorknocker style with a gold teardrop inside of a brushed silver one. It's such a fantastic and unique set!

The necklace chain measures about 19 inches long and the pendant is approximately 3 1/2 inches long (including the tube bail piece) and 2 inches wide at its widest point. The tube piece that rides on the chain measures about 2 1/8 inches long. The necklace is signed "Alice Caviness" on the attached tag and it closes with a spring ring clasp. The earrings measure 1 5/8 inches long and 1 inch wide. They are signed "Alice Caviness" on the backs and close with clip backs.

This is such a wonderful modernist set! It's big and bold and has a very substantial weight. It truly captures the essence of the mod 60s era of fashion. It would look very cool with a low cut black blouse or worn with a gold or silver dress to ring in the new year. The set is in excellent vintage condition with some slight wear to the sides of the gold drops on the earrings where they move against the silver drops. It's not noticeable when worn and doesn't detract from this stunning set. It's a marvelous vintage find!
