Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Black Marbled Bakelite Belt Necklace YSL


Although bold colors, striking prints, and unexpected shapes were the hallmark of YSL collections in the 1970s, he maintained a strong sense of subtlety and commitment to the basics in many of his designs that allowed Saint Laurent to capture wide audiences and purvey his versatile aesthetic. Created from black bakelite marbled with a faint bronze, this piece creates a visual feel unlike other similar pieces from this era.

Constructed in a simple chain strand, rings of bakelite are linked together bronze links. With this piece between each open ring is a solid medallion. This simple feature in addition to the darker color adds more gravity to the piece. Rather than being dainty if worn as a belt, it will center a look to emphasize the waist. If worn as a necklace, it creates a strong appeal that demands attention in place of a more delicate look. 


Length is adjustable: 27- 37 inches

Width: 1.5 inches

In excellent condition, this belt/necklace can be adjusted a few sizes. The length of the chain is perfect for styling as a belt or statement necklace that will beautifully compliment wearers of different sizes. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
