Gorgeous signed Valentino large brooch in Byzantine style, mounted in goldtone metal,with baroque glass based faux pearl cabochons and poured glass cabochon stones by the French maker Gripoix, two in dark red, one in green, and one in a very dark blue. Marked with the Valentino logo of a V and copyright symbol. I've attached it as an enhancer to two gorgeous vintage 1980s necklaces, one with very big double freshwater pearls, and one with very big more rounded freshwater pearls. The necklaces are included with the brooch. Both are continuous strand with no clasp. The brooch is 2 11/16 inches by 2 5/8 inches. The necklaces are approximately 28 and 29 inches long and 3/8 to 1/2 inch wide. The largest pearls are 1 inch long. All pieces are in excellent condition. Display form is life size.
