Vintage Christian Dior Full Parure Ruby Paste with Art Glass & Gilt Necklace Earrings Brooch 1964


In stock

A truly exemplary Vintage Dior Full Parure including a rare full collar necklace with matching brooch and clip on earrings dating to 1964. Designed and created for the House of Dior by Henkel & Grosse during the remarkable 30 year tenure of Marc Bohan. This is a complete treasure! As is well documented for Dior jewellery, the craftsmanship and quality of materials is exceptional. This parure features a striking combination of stones including vibrant large oval cabochon red and green art glass stones intended to mirror semi precious stones, surrounded by intense red Swarovski crystals amidst luxurious gold plated rope twist settings. The attention to detail always exceeds expectations with Dior jewellery. Dwell on the sixteen individual ovals for a moment and you realise the side of the ovals closest to the neck is set with fractionally smaller red Swarovski crystals; allowing the necklace to sit well on the neck whilst the larger stones on the outside edge maximise impact. The details in the jewellery as important as the detail in the clothing. A hallmark of Christian Dior's legacy. Such an incredibly elegant collar design perfectly enhanced with the complimentary brooch and earrings. The style of this parure displays a serious influence from the mid to late 1950s designs when the eponymous founder Christian Dior was at the helm. You can easily imagine this original three piece Dior parure gracing the models walking in the shows during the mid 1950s. This vintage Dior Parure is signed on each piece with the familiar Dior cartouche for this period and dated 1964. Brought to you in very good vintage condition without damage or repair. The necklace measures 38cm long, the brooch 5cm and the clip on earrings 2.5cm. A rare and soughafter Vintage Dior Parure that is both wearable and historic. A real gem! Should you choose to buy from us, we commit to the item being as described. Your vintage costume jewellery will arrive beautifully packaged and presented, helping to preserve your one of a kind piece. Please take a read through our information below and of course, don't hesitate to contact us should you require further assistance.

Vintage and antique costume jewellery is a luxury traditionally crafted product and it needs special care to preserve its exceptional character. Below please find some advice on care and simple steps you can take:

Your order will include our care card suggesting ways to maintain the condition of your jewellery.

We cannot be held liable for any damages incurred after the receipt of products.

Items are typically most suited to occasional rather than constant wear.

Avoid contact with liquids or humidity including sprays such as water, perfume or hairspray and creams. Exposing jewellery to wet or damp could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discolouration and/or loss of stones. Remove jewellery before washing hands, swimming etc.

Store your jewellery in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches.

Add your jewellery last when dressing and remove before undressing.

Avoid hard contact (i.e. dropping or knocking against objects) that can cause scratches or chips.

We are always happy to advise on the care specifics of a particular piece you may be considering.
