Offered today is this gorgeous mid-century modern pendant necklace from Volupte!

Volupte was a well-known manufacturer of ladies' high-end compacts from the 1920's through the 1950's. Volupte produced jewelry only for a short time in the late 50's, so finding Volupte jewelry is extremely rare. You can feel the quality and attention to detail in each piece of Volupte jewelry, as the workmanship is just superb! Once you experience Volupte jewelry I believe you will be hooked! They just don't make jewelry like this anymore!

This exquisite Volupte necklace features an off-white white pearl link strand with a fabulous modernist, wire-wrapped pearl pendant. The large pendant consists of multiple gold wires that are gathered at the top in a large bail and criss-cross one another in the front with pearls along the edges. The pendant is three-dimensional, giving it beauty and interest when viewed from multiple angles. The pearls in the piece are such a lovely color with gorgeous luster. The necklace has a hook clasp that can be attached anywhere along the chain to adjust its size. It's such a unique and wonderful piece!

If the necklace hook is clasped together with the two sides being equal, the necklace measures about 16 1/2 inches, but one side of the necklace chain is longer which allows the necklace to be increased in length to 19 inches. The pendant measures about 2 1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide. The pearls measure approximately 6mm in the pendant, 7mm in the necklace chain and there is one 9mm pearl at the very end of the long side of the necklace chain. The piece is signed "Volupte" on its attached tag.

This necklace is simply stunning! It would look fabulous worn by the bride who favors a mid-century theme to her wedding. It also looks marvelous worn with a suit or dress, and would look absolutely amazing worn with a little black dress for an evening out! The necklace is in very good condition for its age. There is some minor finish wear to the bail, the back of the pendant and to the necklace hook, and to the wires of the links where they have rubbed together over time (photo #4). One pearl in the back of the piece has some luster loss, but the rest of them are lustrous and beautiful. None of this detracts from the beauty of this extremely rare and unique piece! It's gorgeous!
