This week's Haute Tramp Vintage Costume Jewelry Love is an absolute STUNNER!!!! A gorgeous emerald green faceted glass stone and pearl necklace with matching earrings by Balenciaga from Ann Miller's Estate Collection. It is beyond couture jewelry fabulous!!! I included photos of Ann Miller donning her glorious jewels below. Honestly, I'm in love!!!!!
Balenciaga Couture Emerald Green Necklace and Earring Demi Parure
Simulated emeralds, diamonds and pearls in gilt metal, signed Balenciaga on a metal hang tag on the necklace and Made in France on the ear clips, circa 1960s. Necklace is adjustable to 18 ½”, 2 ¾” long at the center; ear clips are 2″ long. Very good condition. Miss Miller changed the original clasp on the necklace. It was restored to the original style by the maker Robert Goossens of Paris and he added the chain extension and Balenciaga hang tag. He authenticated that he created it for Balenciaga for the couture collection.
Sold at auction for $4500.00 on June 5th, 2005
There is a photograph of Miss Miller wearing the necklace and ear clips in her autobiographical book Tapping into the Force. There is also a separate photograph of her wearing the set. Both the book and the photograph are included in this lot.
