A glamorous addition to any wardrobe, the necklace and earrings can be worn by themselves, or together as a set, a true collector's item and wonderful for that very special occasion. The parure comes in its original box.

Christian Dior was born into a wealthy family in 1905, being raised in the Normandy seaside town of Granville. Working first for Robert Piguet and then for Lucien Lelong as a head designer, during the war years, he then opened his own couture house. His now highly celebrated and iconic first collection ‘Corolle’ caused a sensation, and is now known by its more famous name ‘New Look’.  From the very beginning in 1947, jewellery played a very prominent part in his collections, initially recalling the pomp and grandeur of the 18th century , its femininity and glamour, and later moving into extravagant experiments with Austrian stones and paste, throughout the late 1950s until the 1970s.
