Description

The necklace offered here was part of the collection of Madame Helène Rochas. She married the French perfumer and fashion designer Marcel Rochas. In 1955, after her husband's death, she took over the company and the House created mythic fragrances like 'Madame Rochas', 'Femme' and 'Eau de Rochas'. Helène Rochas, known for her remarkable beauty, was one of the most elegant women of her generation and recognized for her refined taste.
