Pretty in Pearls.


This vintage 1980s Dauplaise Pearl Goldtone Necklace is STUNNING. This waterfall necklace attracts so much attention. I wore it once and, I'm not kidding, every woman complimented me on my necklace and wanted to know where I got it.

This Dauplaise vintage Pearl waterfall necklace can be worn so many ways. I just showed two of the ways it can be worn in the photos: all goldtone showing on the waterfall or all pearls showing on the waterfall. This is a perfect necklace for a LBD. It's all you need. It's also a great bridal necklace.

Carol Dauplaise's jewelry may remind you of another very collectible jewelry designer. Dauplaise worked for Miriam Haskell for nearly twenty years, beginning in the late 1950s. Dauplaise's jewelry is known for its use of stone accents, embellishments and pearls. It is statement jewelry. Her jewelry is gaining popularity with collectors and I believe this pearl necklace will only increase in value.


History/Backstory: This comes from my personal collection. I love it but I haven't worn it, except for the one time mentioned above. Unfortunately, I have jewelry favorites; I love my vintage Butler & Wilson pearl goldtone necklace a bit more, so that always gets worn and the Dauplaise doesn't. And that isn't fair.

Condition: Excellent. The pearls are in overall excellent condition. The goldtone is bright and shiny. Some pearls show minor wear, only visible up close. There are two small dots of discolorations. Tiny. One is on the hanging pearl next to the middle pearl. Please see Photo 5, left pic. The other dot is on the 7th pearl from the clasp. Please see Photo 5, right pic. These flaws are minor and do not take away from the overall appearance or fabulousness of the necklace.

One of the best features of the necklace is the clasp. It is so clever, almost too clever. It took me a bit to figure it out. To open the clasp, you push down. The circle ring pushes down on the clasp. To close the clasp, you pull up. It is very secure. You don't ever have to worry about it coming undone.


The clasp is marked 'Dauplaise' on one side and then there is a patent number on the reverse.

Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 10" from the clasp to the end of the center pearl.

Packaging: The necklace will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method. I love to combine shipping.


Smoke free home.
