This gorgeous necklace was made by the Italian design duo of Lyda Toppo and Bruno Coppola, better known as Coppola e Toppo. The necklace has a wearable length of 18" from end to end and is 2 1/2" at it's widest point. It is made from ombre blue crystals in a complex woven collar design. It has the signature heart shaped brass hardware on each end but does not bear the coppola signature. I believe that this was probably done private label for Emilio Pucci.
