This is a nice vintage couture designer necklace.
It is marked to the back on a wee panel: Flotty.
This is the mark for the Italian jewellery company: Flotty Bijoux.
They produce some lovely glamorous jewellery - in a very 1970s / 1980s bling style. All very great for the Christmas season coming up and great for evening wear and more formal parties or events.
This piece with its clear diamante stones and cut black glass ones - make it just spectacular to wear with a little black dress.
From clasp to clasp it measures 17 1/2 inches (or 45 cm) - so I suspect that if you are of average proportions - it should rest on the base of your neck, just above your collar bone.
No stones are missing - and it is sold all nice and clean; ready to wear. It has a most unusual chain as photographed in close up.
Love the two little stars covered with diamante rhinestones in the centre of the main panel.
The main panel measures 3 inches wide (7.5 cm).
The catch is a nice large size lobster claw one - which makes it easy to put on and take off.
Pieces by Flotty are now hard to source - and are very collectable - never cheap items - and beautifully made - my asking price is a fair one for this vintage Italian designer necklace.
