FROM THE 70'S. This belt/necklace went missing for over a year. Just found it hiding in an evening purse this week. I have done extensive due diligence on this piece and could not find it anywhere! I found a similar gripoix NECKLACE from same period for over 3x what I'm asking. I have gained some weight so I am parting with it. Although it rocks even more worn as a neck piece, I can no longer wear it as a belt because I like the medallion to hang lower from right under my waistline. It's from the period 1971-1980. This every avid Chanel collector's dream find belt/necklace is 36" long. The large rollo links have a swirly texture and the large round connectors of the five jeweled focal stations have a masterfully etched byzantine like design on both sides bordered with classic milgrain. The medallion measures 2"x2". The five accent stations measure .75"x 1" each. It is in very good vintage condition and has retained its much of its rich gold tone. There's slight peeling on the hook and back of medallion. Also, I had the center GLASS stone replaced with a genuine 12mm pearl (taken from a pair of earrings) which I think made this piece "pop" even more. I last wore it at as a neck piece with same size South Sea pearl studs. I got tons of complements! There were missing stones on 2 of the 5 accent stations (3 total) which my jeweler replaced with diamond simulants. I've not replaced the 2 missing stones on the medallion per my jeweler's advise because he thinks the bezel setting might be compromised. I have shown this piece to a highly reputable auction house in New York. Because I had the center glass stone replaced with a genuine pearl by my jeweler instead of having it serviced at Chanel, this auction house could not auction it off as it is not in its original state; although enhanced. I removed the pearl and was planning to replace it with a pink tourmaline (I just gently placed the gemstone and genuine diamonds on top empty bezels to take photo). I will send the genuine pearl and 2 diamond simulants for the cross and one of the stations. Have your jeweler set them. FREE INSURED (signature required) USPS 2-Day Priority shipping.
