Striking vintage 1960s glittery Vendome brooch and earring set, composed of iridescent silvery faceted cone beads, accented with wired strands of faux sead pearls, for a gorgeous flowery look. The brooch is signed "© Vendome" on an applied cartouche on the brooch's filigree silvertone backing; the earrings are marked on each earring paddle. The set is in excellent vintage condition. The brooch measures nearly 2.5" across; earrings are 1.25" across.
Vendome was one of the "better" jewelry lines of Cohn and Rosenberger (Coro), and was produced from the mid-1940s to about 1979. It was carried by better department and specialty stores, and featured unique, creative handmade designs, many of which incorporated high-quality beads and findings.
