Sol Finkelstein founded Deja Inc. in 1939, but because of accused trademark infringement, the company name was changed to Reja in 1941. Reja Inc. was listed at 377 5th Avenue in New York City in the 1953 Jewelers' Buyers Guide, so the company was still operating for a least a part of the year 1953. This lovely set consists of a gold-tone necklace with five interlocking sections each holding prong-mounted, open-back, oval faux opal cabochon in fiery pink with blue highlights. A snake chain with fold-over clasp mechanism completes the 16" necklace length. The gold-tone earrings each hold one prong-mounted opal cabochon of the same size. The clip earrings measure 7/8" in length and 5/8" in width. The faux opals are 1/2" in length. The earring clips are each marked "Reja"; the necklace is not marked. There is no metal wear or damages to the cabochons; a few minor scratches on the necklace clasp. A beautiful and timeless design that looks like the finest jewelry with real gems. You will be noticed when you wear this fabulous Reja demi-parure.
