"Cadoro" late 60's ivory beaded necklace with gold pressed, scroll leaves, decorated with mint green and baby blue ceramic flowers.
This is an incredible statement necklace from a great collectible vintage designer. It's a very wearable piece in pastel shades with a touch of golden glamour.
Based in New York, Cadoro was founded two friends Steven Brody and Daniel Stoenescu in 1954. Their jewellery was sold in luxury stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Apparently their motto was "Famous jewelry for the rich and famous!".
Cadoro became known for their inventive jewellery which was handcrafted using traditional crystals, gold and silver toned metals, beautiful rhinestones and glass crystals from all over the world, seed pearls and stones from the ocean. They were determined to use only the finest sources for their pieces.
Cador's customers included Wallis Simpson (The Duchess of Windsor) and Barbara Streisand. The company closed in 1987 and some of their collection are preserved in New York's Metropolitan Museum and The Museum of Modern Art.
This label is highly prized by vintage collectors as the jewellery was produced in limited numbers and is quite rare and unusual.
We're absolutely delighted to stock this piece of vintage design history as I don't think we'll come across another!
Our fabulous Cadoro necklace is €290.
