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. I am the primary owner of this necklace.  This is what Clive’s Unique Jewelry is all about.

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.
