Henkel and Grossé specialized in gold-colored metal pieces, but for Dior, they produced highly elaborate rhinestone sets of jewelry as well. All of their jewelry was handmade.
In the 1960s, ‘Chr.Dior’, a copyright symbol and the year of manufacture was marked onto the pieces.
The 1970s and 1980s pieces by Henkel and Grossé were produced in higher number than their 50s counterparts and are therefore easier to find.
RARE FIND indeed
