DESCRIPTION: Schiaparelli Pink Beaded Necklace: Five luscious strands of pale pink, lavender, and raspberry colored glass beads!! Elsa Schiaparelli designed this gorgeous large necklace in the 1940s and it is as fabulous today as the year it was made!! Schiaparelli was the “it” designer and the “epitome of female fashion modernity in Paris before it fell to the Germans. Elsa fled to NY, but stopped designing after the war, when fashions drastically changed. How amazing is it that we have this opulent necklace available? It must have been designed to wear with her flowing silks and billowing taffetas.
