This is a lovely vintage 1987 Avon Color Waves necklace and pierced earrings in “Green Onyx” color plastic beads, with small black beads in between. I would call this an art deco style design, with those unusual shaped triangle beads, and that interesting black line on the green earrings. These Avon jewelry pieces come with the original boxes.
The necklace measures about 16 inches in length. The earrings measure about 1 1/8 inches by about 7/8 inch. The earrings have surgical steel posts. I do not see any Avon manufacturer’s marks on the pieces.
The boxes are dated “1987”, and the necklace box says “Created in British Hong Kong Exclusively For Avon Products, Inc. Distr., New York, N.Y. 10019”. The earring box says “Avon Products, Inc., Distr., New York, N.Y. 10019”. The boxes have cleaning instructions for these Avon jewelry pieces on the back.
The boxes are in good shape, with a little wear and tear here and there, and maybe a little dust or a tiny bit of dirt and a minor bend or crease from being packed away. The boxes have small spots of white paper wear on the front where it looks like a sticker or label was removed.
This Avon Color Waves necklace and pierced earring set is in excellent vintage condition. It came from an estate of an Avon distributor, and it was packed away for many years. It is my guess that it was not worn (?), but I cannot say this for sure, and I will describe it as “used, or gently worn”.
This Avon Color Waves necklace and earrings would be a great accessory for your wardrobe, or it would make a lovely gift for someone special!
