Intermission: Cherry Rainbow Crystal Necklace by Vendome

Image

More exploring in Mom’s old boxes yielded this vintage Vendome choker fashioned of cherry colored crystals with pops of blue and rainbow colors. Image

What caught my eye was the clever fastener made of two leaves and a central flower hook upon which to loop the beaded end. Between the larger faceted aurora borealis beads, are these strands of tiny cherry red beads that lend a vibrant detail. Image

Although from a distance the double stranded choker struck me as loud and garish, once I saw the meticulous detailing it rather enchanted me. Thanks, Mom, you keep on surprising me!

So called “costume” jewelry, especially of the vintage variety, can be very nice indeed.
