Minaudieres by Judith Leiber are a rare blend of art and utility. After establishing her own brand in 1963, Judith Leiber began crafting ingenious shapes that are brilliantly and meticulously beaded with Austrian crystals. This minaudiere and pillbox are done in beautiful colors and shapes. The minaudiere is done in silver, gray, blue, and purple crystals, and its shape is similar to an emerald cut stone. The pillbox is also a geometric shape, done in green, yellow, and soft brown crystals. They both feature push-lock closures. The minaudiere has an optional shoulder strap, silver hardware, and a metallic silver leather interior. The pillbox features gold hardware and a gold interior.
