This is a rare vintage Elsa Peretti bean made of pre-ban ivory exclusive from Tiffany & Co. This necklace was purchased in 1976 directly from Tiffany's and has had only one owner. The ivory turns a golden color on one side from oils in the wearer's skin which is a natural occurrence besides showing that it is actually ivory. (Owner's receipt included)
The bean measures 2.1 inches wide X 1.4 inches tall X 0.6 inch thick and weighs 19.5 grams. It is suspended on a 16" 18K gold chain, marked with the Tiffany/Peretti tag. The original Tiffany receipt is included.
The necklace will arrive in a traditional Tiffany blue bag and will be shipped via Priority Mail and insured. There is no shipping charge.
