Re-engineered Vintage Givenchy Whistle Keychain 1970s - 1979 Collection
Re-engineered Vintage Givenchy Whistle Keychain Necklace 1970s
One for you old ravers, this Givenchy 'G' 1970s whistle pendant is a new addition to our re-engineered range of vintage jewellery.
The 1979 'G' Givenchy whistle is a working whistle and a fave piece of mine. In fact, my very first piece of vintage jewellery that inspired Jagged Metal was a mint condition red version of this on the original snake chain which I will keep forever!
This one had been separated from its original chain and had been made into a keyring. So we added a chunky gold plated chain to give it some oomf.
Givenchy are known for producing timelessly chic jewellery throughout the 70s and 80s which are now highly sought after and collectable. Founded by Hubert de Givenchy in 1952, Audrey Hepburn, was Givenchy's greatest muse and wore the label in some her most famous roles, including Breakfast at Tiffany's. By the 1970s, on the advice of Cristóbal Balenciaga, Givenchy arrived on New York’s Fifth Avenue in 1976, diversifying into accessories and shoes.
1977 -1981 was a heyday for Givenchy jewellery where quality and design were impeccable and pieces from that era are particularly collectable.

Condition is everything
We never sell anything we would not be proud to wear ourselves. Vintage pieces are special because they have a story to tell and that is sometimes reflected in its unique patina.Most vintage pieces have minor imperfections which we try our very best to describe and reflect honestly in our photography.
How we classify the condition of our pieces
New - pieces that have never been worn and are in pristine condition.
Mint condition - pieces that in near perfect condition. They look as if they have never been worn or have been looked after exceptionally well.
Excellent condition - pieces that look hardly used, there may be a few tiny little scratches or marks that can only be seen if you look closely and unnoticeable when worn.
Very good condition - pieces that look a little used, minor scratches, chips or marks from years of wear or storage but consistent with age and adds to vintage patina and charm. There will not be any structural or functional problems.
Taking care of your jewellery
Signs of age add to the unique appeal and story of your precious pieces, but to minimise unwanted damage try to avoid liquids, make up and hair products and where possible try to store flat in packaging to avoid storage wear and tear.
We are always happy to make any repairs whether you have purchased through our store or not.
