Item # 121653 (B-26)
Beautiful art glass rhinestone brooch and matching clip on earrings demi parure.
Brooch consists of two large pear/teardrop pink moonstone cats eye open back cabochons, a large pink faceted glass round rhinestone, 4 open back navette shaped glass cabochons in a pale pink, 4 faceted glass pale pink navettes with aurora borealis finish. There are 16 purple faceted glass round accent rhinestones.
Each earring consists of a round pink moonstone cats eye, an open back navette shaped glass cabochon in pale pink, a faceted glass pale pink navette with aurora borealis finish, and 4 purple faceted glass round accent rhinestones.
Set consists of 41 rhinestones all hand prong set in a gold tone rhodium plating.
Condition is very good antique with typical wear due to age and handling. Slight scuffing upon close examination through my jewelers loop to the aurora borealis finish, not eye visible. One rhinestone on the brooch has a spot on the ab finish that is eye noticeable as seen in photos. This would make a stunning set for any bride. Although unverified, I feel this set definitely has all the attributes of DeLizza & Elster, from the rhinestones to the actual construction.
