ITEM # 071708 (B-357)
Contemporary fashion designer signed rhinestone lariat necklace, TIARA MISU. This company began in 1998. Inspired by many antique and vintage styles such as Art Nouveau and Mid Century, they recreate vintage jewelry using vintage crystals, intricate filigree, as well as rare discontinued Swarovski crystals with new materials to give you a quality piece of contemporary jewelry with all the stunning bling of a rare heirloom.
This company was founded by two ladies, one of which has gone in another direction. Now Miss Ellie NYC is the sole proprietor. I read a bit about her history, which to me is very interesting, as she was born in Tennessee, in which I live...and has made it to the Big Apple, but keeps her Southern Belle charm going with her big hats, short shorts, red lipstick and high heels!
Necklace consists of a central focal point of vintage rhinestones producing a floral motif, consisting of a large round faceted glass rhinestone with a peacock blue/purple aurora borealis finish. This rhinestone is surrounded by 5 large navette faceted glass rhinestones with a heliotrope finish aka "watermelon". In between are 5 smaller navette faceted glass rhinestones in an aquamarine color. These are all bezel set. The chain is produced with small round blue milk glass cabochons and 4 more of the smaller aquamarine navettes and 2 more heliotrope navettes, along with a round faceted aquamarine colored glass rhinestone on the end. These rhinestones on the actual chain have been meticulously hand prong set. All rhinestones are closed back, which would lead me to believe they are also foil back rhinestones with all the brilliance they produce.
Necklace measures total length at 18", but can be worn as a choker style as well, as the rhinestones extend to 15" with a 3" chain extension. As with the mid century necklaces, this one has the classic J hook clasp.
These pieces may not be vintage/antique, but my guess is, they are definitely going to only go up in value as collectors find these beauties.
Condition: Very good vintage condition with typical wear due to age, as well as typical wear due to age of rhinestones. Upon very close inspection, I found one of the heliotropes on the flower portion to have a nick on the corner. Stating for accuracy purposes as it is not eye noticeable. You will not be disappointed.
I have another TIARI MISU necklace Iisted as well.
