I caught my breath the day I found this belt; it's that beautiful. This "Huguette Creations" belt is black velvet with black silk lining; it is reinforced with interfacing which gives it a bit of padding and structure. There are two beautiful hand-embroidered gold flowers on each end of the belt. The flowers are made up of dozens of tiny gold coils that are wrapped around threading beneath them. The petals and leaves are slightly raised. Each flower has what I believe is a round amber stone at the center nestled in gold beadwork. The threading on the leaves is a mint green color which ever so slightly shows through the gold coils, creating a soft green effect. The workmanship is stunning and although not marked such I think it's safe to say the belt is entirely hand made. There was a similar evening bag with the same label that sold on 1st Dibs and that seller claimed the stitching was real gold; I believe this belt has the same. The belt ties with two black and rose gold cords with gold tassels - please note the wrap around the head of one of the tassels has come unraveled. The letters "HC" are embroidered in gold near one of the flowers. Other than the tassel and some very faint and tiny "bruising" marks on the velvet, it's in excellent condition. It's an absolute work of art and should be treated as such. I had found a website for the label when I first found it and did some research but can't seem to find it again; if I do I will add it to the listing.
