Ann Klein Golden Vintage Criss Cross Necklace/Choker Set

Clive’s Unique Jewelry is always attracted to something shiny (it’s a good thing Clive doesn’t work in a Gold Mine) and this Ann Klein signed necklace set fits the bill.  The necklace consists of 15 criss crossed plump shiny gold tone hidden hinged designs with a square snap clasp bearing the signature Lion’s Head Ann Klein Hallmark.  This vintage set includes matching clip on earrings.  We are sure that this set was inspired by Paloma Picasso’s criss cross jewelry designs.  This choker necklace measures 16.0 inches in length and the matching earrings are about 1.25 inches wide.  Do you want to wear a classic?…… you have come to the right place !

1940’s Aqua & Rhinestone Scroll Brooch

To quote my dear friend Eleanor McMillan, this brooch is an  “Unsigned Piece…Orphan Of  Beauty” Clive’s Unique Jewelry just purchased this 1940’s brooch at a recent flea market.  The brooch has been well worn .  There are scratches to the Vermeil  coating and some of the foil is missing on the back of the aquamarine crystals and there are Rhinestones missing  on the front…..BUT JUST LOOK AT THIS  BROOCH……look at how well it was made.  It has never lost its elegance, its creative design or its collectability . It was probably lying in some drawer in a cigar box all these years.  Just imagine what this brooch has lived through and still survived.  It could be the start of a great collection for you. The brooch measures  3 inches in length and about 2 inches at its widest point.  Clive’s Unique Jewelry rescued this brooch,  now lets find a permanent home for this elegant piece!

J. Crew Rare Vintage Garden Flower Necklace

White pronged Rhinestones and small pink faceted crystals compliment this  J. Crew signed necklace whose main feature are these small and large white metal  and polished gold tone Tulip flowers each with a  sparkling single Rhinestone in the flower’s center.  The smaller Tulips represent buds just beginning to open. We did a little research and found this jewelry style was created by J.

Crew tag.  No need to tip toe thru the Tulips…..make a great statement with these wide awake garden flowers!

Gerda Lynggaard Rare, Important Fashion Necklace

Many, many years ago I was at my Distributor for Gerda Lynggaard jewelry and I  met Lynggaard there  ( I also have her autograph) and I purchased this necklace which she  personally designed.  Over the years on  occasion I would display it at various antique shows. This unsigned necklace consists of a variety of materials, including acrylic beads, faux Pearls, glass bugle beads, gold foil ceramic tubes to name a few all of which are randomly placed. It’s secured by a round brass “planetary” slide clasp with a large faux Pearl.  This bib style necklace measures about 19.5 inches across.  The clasp is about 1.5 inches in diameter.  As far as I am aware. this was a singular design .  I have taken exceptional care with this necklace and it is in excellent condition considering its age.

William deLillo Very Rare Crystal & Frosted Glass Demi Parure

Clive’s Unique Jewelry is proud to offer from his personal collection this extremely rare frosted glass & crystal necklace designed and created by William DeLillo.  Mr. DeLillo worked at Cartier, Harry Winston and Miriam Haskell before starting his own Co. William DeLillo LLC in New York City in about 1968.  In Mr. DeLillo’s later years Clive met him at a show in New York City and a friendship was formed for many years after that chance meeting.  Clive, however, purchased this necklace in Paris in the 1980’s and would display it occasionally at antique shows.  Mr. DeLillo informed me that the necklace was made in the 1970’s and came in three colors…..black frosted, green frosted and white frosted glass which you see here.  This demi parure consists of 13 segments of white frosted iceberg glass each bordered by one row of white Rhinestones. Eleven of the frosted glass segments suspend a  multi strand cluster of round faceted and teardrop crystals.   The matching clip on earrings compliment the frosted glass segments. The necklace is about 12 inches long and has a 2.5 inch extension chain.  The deLillo metal hallmark appears on one of the earrings .  Unfortunately William DeLillo passed away a while back but his magnificent creations live on.  This necklace represents what Clive’s Unique Jewelry is all about.
