Long chrome bib necklace with round pendants enameled in orange and blue concentric circles.  Chrome links on the back allow this piece to set into the contours of your neck. Cardin made several iterations of this design in 1969 and this one is the largest.   http://bit.ly/2pLRJVX

Pierre Cardin was at the height of his powers in the 1960s & 1970s, designing some of the most futuristic jewelry, clothing & hats of the era.  He was known for using geometric and bubble shapes that often looked more like art than practical fasion. Born in Italy in 1922, Cardin grew up in France and starting apprenticing as a tailor's apprentice at age 14.  Cardin moved to Paris in 1945. There, he studied architecture and worked with fashion designer Paquin after World War II. The then worked with Elsa Schiaparelli until he became head of design at Christian Dior.   Cardin founded his own haute couture house in 1950. His career was launched when he designed about 30 of the costumes for "the party of the century", a masquerade ball in Venice on 3 September 1951. He was one of the first couture designers to create a ready-to-wear line. He also was a trailblazer in licensing his name for products such as perfume, automobiles and using his logo on accessories and furniture. Cardin eventually overexposed his brand through that licensing and it fell out of favor in the 1990s. He has retaken control of his branding and has reemerged with new designs plus a renovation of the ruins of the castle in Lacoste, Vaucluse that was once inhabited by the Marquis de Sade.
