The original Double Stand Faux Pearl Necklace was designed by Coco Chanel and is believed to have been strung in the 1920s. Chanel felt that the clasp is an integral part of a piece of jewelry’s design and should be decorative instead of disguised. The original clasp had glass rhinestones simulating a Ceylon sapphire, and was strung of hand-painted, hand-knotted Czech glass faux pearls. The necklace and matching bracelet were given to Jacqueline by her mother, Janet Lee Bouvier Auchincloss.
This exquisitely detailed reproduction Double Strand Faux Pearl Necklace is a faithful adaptation of the original. Similarly crafted of hand-painted, hand-knotted Czech glass faux pearls, our replica's lovely box clasp features faceted Swarovski crystals set in rhodium plate. Each necklace is packaged in a gorgeous burgundy velour covered steel gift box. The top strand measures 18 inches long, the lower strand 20 inches long.
