This collection, designed by Eugene Bertolli, was inspired by President Nixon’s visit to China in 1972. The presidential visit signified the first arrival of a U.S. president to visit the People’s Republic of China. This set consisted of two different pendant necklaces, two cuff designs, two earring designs, and a wide flexible mesh belt with the dragon motif as its buckle. The collection came in both gold and silver-toned metal and was called “The Dynasty Collection.” In addition to the jewelry line, Napier designed a rectangular wooden box (possibly walnut) with either a gold or silver-plated lid with the dragon motif on top.
