ITEM # 071707 (B-356)
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 large champagne to peach color faceted glass pear shaped rhinestone as the central focal point, where two rhinestone tassels attach. As you can see, this piece has many root beer colored glass rhinestones, several round faceted hematite colored rhinestones, crystal clear faceted as well as some stunning opaque opalite shaded rhinestones. All rhinestones are closed back, which would lead me to believe they are also foil back rhinestones with all the brilliance they produce. All have been meticulously hand prong set.
Necklace measures total length at 18", but can be worn as a choker style as well, as the rhinestones extend to 13 1/2" with a 4 1/2" chain extension. Unlike the mid century pieces that used only a J hook clasp, this modern stunner is very safe with the lobster claw clasp, but they did add the extra rhinestone on the receiving end to re-create the Hollywood Regency era jewelry. The central point along with the two tassels measure 4" on the drop.
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. You will not be disappointed.
I have another TIARI MISU necklace I will be listing as well.
