HUGE RARE WILLIAM DELILLO EGYPTIAN STYLE NECKLACE SET – Belgian-born William deLillo is one of the most important designers of couture costume jewelry of the 20th century. His pieces were often made as one of a kind designs for private clients including royals, celebrities and socialites from here and abroad. This fabulous Egyptian inspired necklace and ear clips have all the elements that make it unique. The gilt metal square link chains that are joined together to form the pendant have the color of 18K gold. The simulated turquoise, jade, lapis and carnelian stones are in the shape of scarabs and some have designs on the reverse sides. They have not been tested for being gemstones. The necklace is quite large and impressive, measuring 19″ long PLUS the pendant which is 4 1/8″ long x 4 1/4″ wide. The earrings (clips not pierced) are 1 1/2″ long. The necklace is signed deLillo and one earring is signed Wm deLillo. All pieces are in excellent condition with no signs of wear to the plating. It’s probably from the 1970s when so many designers were influenced by King Tut’s global museum tour.
