We are pleased to offer this very classy vintage 1950s glass faux pearl bead necklace by Vendome with a lovely silvertone diamante clasp. The necklace has a great weight to it and is very good quality. The necklace is in excellent condition for its age and is looks great on - would like stunning with a little black dress - very Audrey Hepburn! Stamped Vendome on clasp. Vendome was established as a subsidiary of Coro to manufacture a superior line of jewelry. The mark was used as early as 1944 on charm bracelets and faux pearl jewellery, but the Vendome line which began in the 1950's did not become popular until the early 1960's, largely due to beautiful designs introduced by Helen Marion, Vendome's principal designer. Basically, Vendome replaced Corocraft, which, up to that time, marked the higher quality jewelry made by Coro. Vendome jewellery used the best of imported rhinestones and faceted crystal beads. The clarity and brilliance of the stones and top quality metalwork combined in artistically expressive designs were the main factors behind Vendome's success. Mark" Vendome". The jewellery is highly collectible and should continue to rise in prices.
