Description

This thoroughly dramatic statement necklace takes its fanciful name from French ballet dancer Zizi Jeanmaire. The openwork fan design is based on the Art Deco work of Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892–1990), better known as Erté. The necklace's stunning two-tone design showcases satin-finish 18K gold plate and rhodium plate with more than 100 Swarovski® crystals.

The artist enjoyed a multifaceted career as a costume and set designer; he is especially renowned for the fabulous covers he created for Harper's Bazaar magazine from 1915–1936. The Met houses an important collection of Erté's original gouaches.

Oh, this necklace is an introvert's dream! It is elegant yet not gaudy. It has a kind of timeless beauty that does not go out of style. I myself like the weight of the necklace which helps it to lie flat against the skin. Yes, it's expensive, but I'm sure part of that money goes to support the fabulous Metropolitan Museum!

Jewelry looks like the photo where the model is wearing it, NOT the other photo!

The second photo, showing a model wearing the necklace, is very accurate for how the jewelry appears in person. I bought the necklace and the matching drop earrings before this second image was included though, and the first photo gave me the impression that the necklace was much more delicate. I was disappointed by the thickness of the metal, the finish, and the contrast between the crystals' setting and the rest (it's a gold color in the first image but silver in the second). It's still a pretty piece but really didn't seem worth the price point and wasn't suitable for the occasion I had in mind. I rated it 3 stars because the listing was revised to include that second picture, so it's no longer as misleading.

I really don't need to spend this amount of money on another necklace. This one was so beautiful that I had to keep going online to look at it. I finally decided that I would regret it in the future if I didn't buy it. I am not disappointed in the least. It is a true thing of beauty--delicate with an intricate design--a real eye catcher. It speaks of elegance, class and ballgowns. I may have to wear it with my jeans however because it is too beautiful to not wear it just because I don't have a ball to go to! I think this necklace will be a collector's item in the future. I actually would not recommend this product to a friend because I don't want anyone else in this area to have one!
