This wonderful tangarine ring is the perfect addition to your vintage jewelry collection. The large bright navette, with an "open rivet" setting, surrounded by smaller prong-set faceted rhinestones, is classic Juliana style. There were not many Juliana Original rings made, and not many have survived as rings because many were converted to brooches or necklaces if the bands broke.
Currently set at a ring size 8, the rhinestone setting measures approximately 1" long by .5" wide.
The setting and stones are in excellent condition. The adjustable band shows wear - the original gold tone coating has come off, revealing the original metal. As with any adjustable ring, the band weakens over time if it is pushed and pulled frequently. This band still feels sturdy, making me think it has some good times ahead. But with Juliana rings, do take care.
Dating this piece: I received this ring, along with another one, from a lady who has been a collector of Juliana jewelry for years. She felt very certain this was an actual Juliana Original, based on the construction. However, following her lead, I have called this Juliana Style because without the original hangtag or one of the original makers present, it is very difficult to certify that a piece is a Juliana Original. The DeLizza and Elster company has been making jewelry for many recognizable jewelry makers since their beginning. Julianna Original, their only actual jewelry line, is enjoying popularity today. The pieces were made during a short period from sometime in 1967 through 1968.
MATERIALS: Navette Cut Rhinestones, gold tone metal setting and band
