It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Jewelry Obsession post and today’s piece will certainly make up for lost time. This past weekend, I dropped by Betteridge to see what new estate pieces had come in recently and my jaw nearly dropped to the floor when I laid eyes on this Van Cleef & Arpels Gold Double Eagle Pendant Chain Necklace, circa 1972.
The serious piece is both bold and beautiful, in a very 1970s kind of way. Not only is the pendant intricate in detail but the chain itself carries on the double eagle and wing motif throughout its links. This statement necklace is certain to be a conversation starter and is my current jewelry obsession!
