Juliana (DeLizza & Elster) Gold-Tone and Black Rhinestone Brooch

Designer William DeLizza and Harold Elster founded the D & E Company in 1947 and it closed in the late 1990's. By 1953 the 'Juliana' line of unmarked jewelry was being produced. For only two years, 1967-1969, the pieces were marked with a hang tag. There are some identifying clues to Juliana pieces - figure eight puddling of soldering , attached pin assembly, prong-set stones, odd numbers used in construction and wire reinforcement to list some. They also made jewelry for many of the major costume jewelry companies of the era to their individual specifications.

The lovely oval-shaped brooch is set with a multitude of prong-set, jet-black rhinestones, closed and open back, in round, pear and marquise shapes of varying sizes. All stones are prong-set in a heavy gold-tone mounting with a safety clasp mechanism. The brooch measures 1 3/4" in length and width. Near mint condition. Classy.
