This amazing signed Vendome faceted aurora borealis crystal cluster brooch and earrings demi parure set is perfect at any time of the year. Plus, per the date notes below, it is a unique "transition" set in the history of Vendome jewelry.
The brooch measures about 2" in diameter. The earrings measure about 1.25" in diameter.
All three pieces are in excellent condition.
Dating this set: This is an interesting set. The brooch and earrings are clearly made to match. As with any production process, some pieces are made before other pieces, and then they are combined. I am dating this as 1955 because that is the year that Vendome started using the copyright symbol with their maker's mark. You can see that there is not a copyright symbol on the brooch, but there is one on each of the earrings. This set seems to have been made during the period when they were in transition from the old mark to the new mark.
Vendome was an up-scale brand used by Coro between 1944 and 1970, and was only carried in select stores.
