Vintage YSL Demi-Parure Choker Necklace and Earrings Yves Saint Laurent
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a demi-parure consisting of a choker necklace and earrings made under the Yves Saint Laurent “YSL” brand name. The set is made of silver toned metal, I assume rhodium plated, with large red glass stones. The necklace is made of large link chain with a centre piece set with a red cut glass stone surrounded by baguette shaped rhinestones. The earrings have clip-on fasteners. All pieces are marked “YSL” on the back side.
The necklace measures 17” in length laid out straight and is adjustable to 19”, while the earrings measure 1 1/8” in height. The set is in excellent condition except for a tiny fleabite to the raised cut edge of the stone on one of the earrings, visible in the close-up photo of the earrings, not at all noticeable under normal viewing, and quite minor. I think that the set dates to the 1980s, although I can’t be precise on dating.
This is a beautiful quality YSL set, very striking, and sure to be noticed!
