Yves Saint Laurent Marbled Yellow Bakelite Gold Link Belt Necklace, 1970s
YSL’s incorporation of larger-than-life jewelry elements rivaled that of Coco Chanel’s. Nonetheless the versatility and vibrant colors ensured that these items could be easily worn and styled with looks season after season. Made in the 1970s, this YSL statement piece is created from marbled honey-colored bakelite rings linked together by a gold-toned metal.
The rings are positioned in two rows maximizing the display of the rich color. As a belt, the geometric shapes add a degree of dimension to a look from casual to classy. Additionally, this piece can easily be styled as a vibrant statement necklace, dangling at length for a lax-chic look or shorted and contrasting a black or navy dress for a pop of elegant color.
Attached to one of the rings is the YSL logoed plaque. The hook and link style of this belt allow it to fit several sizes. It is in excellent condition. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year.
