Amid all of the beautiful items on display at the 2015 Winter Antiques Show, Ann Nitze's spectacular vintage necklace stood out from the rest. Mrs. Nitze, herself a premier art dealer specializing in 19th - 20th century sculptures and paintings, arrived at the Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan wearing a very rare Gripoix for Chanel necklace she purchased from MDVII.
According to Alison Minton's review of the event in New York Social Diary, "Ms. Nitze’s vintage necklace was really something extraordinary."
