Vintage Francois by Coro Necklace Pendant Brooch Pin Earrings Demi Set
Vintage Francois by Coro Necklace Pendant Brooch Pin Earrings Demi Set is a rare hard to find set. The satin gold plated hardware is set with a central amethyst purple stone encircled by Swarovski rhinestones and accented by turquoise ballotini beads. Francois was one of three top end lines for Coro (along with Vendome and Corocraft). To inspect photos, simply click on the binocular icon on the top right corner of any photo.
Overall excellent condition, the brooch pin appears to have had the smaller dangle from each side removed. However, I have also seen other pieces with only the center dangle so uncertain if it is possible that it was made that way. This set belonged to my Aunt and if the dangles are missing, they may have been removed intentionally. I have reset this set with all new stones and ballotini beads with the exception of the large central amethyst purple "stones". There is one small smooth chip to the amethyst stone on the brooch pin. The pendant (necklace and brooch) measures 2" x 1 5/8" and the length, including the central dangle, measures 3" long. The necklace chain measures 22" long. The earrings measure 1 3/4" long and 5/8" wide and the set weighs 81 grams. All hardware is signed Francois. (I-031218-#1, #182, STL)

This jewelry comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected these fine designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as unique and special pieces. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I know that I will be keeping some special pieces for myself and will also be offering many pieces in store as well. Please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
