When I first saw these pearls I fell in love instantly with the colours of the Gripoix rhinestones set on the clasp. The beautiful rows of pearls reminded me of Audrey Hepburn's necklace in Breakfast At Tiffany's.
Vintage hunters and fashion connoisseurs know that Gripoix was one of the old-school specialists that has serviced couture houses for decades.Particularly famous for its collaborations with Chanel, Gripoix has been the most important producer of poured glass jewelry since 1869.
I'm sure many will agree pearls are a timeless piece of jewellery and can be worn with anything to give it a look of elegance. To own a vintage set from YSL would give any jewellery box instant luxury, pair with a black dress and up-do and your Audrey ready!
