The “Frosted Leaves” Collection

With Thanksgiving just two days away, I decided to share this remarkably stylish necklace that was presented by The Napier Co. in November, 1957.  The light-weight design features a bib with seven cascading drops all tapered in length. The antiqued-gold frosted finish has remained as velvety as the day it was plated. This style came in two colors: antiqued-gold and antiqued silver.  The designer was Eugene Bertolli.  The collection name is “Frosted Leaves.”
