This sautoir necklace and earrings set is a stunning Art Deco-style creation made with faux grey and white pearls for Coco Chanel’s boutique in 1948-1952. The white pearls are round; the grey, tear-drop shaped. The fringe pendant is capped with a rondelle and has just been restrung professionally. The long and luxurious ear clips repeat the fringe of the necklace. I bought this set for my personal collection from Ginger Moro, author of European Designer Jewelry and Rousselet expert. These extraordinary jewels appear on page 67 of her book.
