This Chanel Very Rare 1960's Byzantine Cross Statement Necklace is done in brass with red beads. Very few of these were made. The piece was designed by Chanel jewelry designer Gossens, and is entirely handmade. The brass metal cross has the most intricate details even in the faces of the priests. The back of the cross also has extreme craftsmanship and intricate detail. You absolutely cannot find a piece made this well today by Chanel, or almost any other designer. It is a truly extraordinary piece that any collector would be proud to own. The hook closure secures the necklace. The bottom of the cross has a hinge on it so it is a flexible bottom piece, probably so it would not be easily dented or broken as it is such a big piece it needs some flexibility.
The overall condition of this necklace is very good with minor scuffing and slight tarnishing.
