This is a stunning Authentic Chanel Austrian purple crystal chicklet 60" long runway length necklace, sautoir. The multifaceted Austrian crystals sparkle in the light. The gold plating is most likely 18k or 24k because this necklace is vintage 1981 and Chanel used 18k or 24k gold back then. It is made up of twelve chicklet-shaped purple Austrian crystals set in 3/4" x 5/8" gold plated rectangles alternated with five Austrian purple crystals set in 3/8" round gold plated circles. Signed and dated 1981. Made in France.
These Chanel crystal necklaces were limited in production and the vintage 1981 chicklet sautoirs have become collectors pieces. Each Austrian crystal chicklet necklace has a gold plated signature tag dated 1981. Wear this fabulous runway necklace alone or layer it with other long vintage necklaces. Wear it with jeans and a T-shirt or a classic white blouse. Wear it to accent a cashmere sweater or wear it with a little black dress. Even wear it with a gown to a black tie event. This necklace does not come with the original box, but we will send it to you in a beautiful black necklace box.

We consider the condition of this necklace to be EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION. However, five of the small little crystals have been replaced. The finish on the gold plating of these five crystals is a little duller than the rest of the gold plating. It is not noticeable unless you are scrutinizing it. Please see the photos. The price of this necklace takes the replaced crystals into consideration. All of the crystals are in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or spots. All of the gold plating is in excellent vintage condition with no tarnishing except as noted above. Because the gold plating is either 18k or 24k, it has retained its original beautiful luster.
