The Sautoir necklace was first worn in the 1870s. It was an extra long strand of beads or chain completed with a tassel or pendant made from fine jewels. Sautoirs drew the eye to the waist area where the jewel embellishment would rest. This necklace reached it’s heyday through the 1920s and 1930s as the fashion choice of wealthy, stylish women and well appointed Hollywood stars. The sautoir then fell out of vogue until it was resurrected in the 1960s and regained popularity with the very same groups who embraced it in the 1930s. We love the look of the sautoir and enjoy making them available to our more adventurous clientele. Created in the style of true antique sautoirs this necklace features both a pearl and a tassel. Hanging from the four section chain is a delightful open work pendant centered with a large lucite Mabe pearl dating to the 1970s. Alan has attached a hand created stacked tassel that glistens and twinkles with every move. This sautoir is suitable for daywear and can travel seamlessly into the evening.
