Gorgeous vintage brooch with the characteristics of Juliana or DeLizza and Elster has aurora borealis and purple rhinestone chatons in a domed layered design, with a purple chaton on the top and smaller aurora borealis chatons surrounding it. The lowest layer has purple chatons and there are smaller ab chatons accenting the purple chatons. The brooch is just under 2 inches across and 1 inch high, ( 5 cm, 2.5 cm) with gold tone metal prong settings and a safety clasp. The coordinating earrings have the same colors of purple and aurora borealis, with ab navettes and chatons, and purple pear shaped stones. There are clip backs with gold tone metal. Earrings are 1 1/4" long (3.2 cm) The brooch has a scratch on one of the aurora borealis stones, although given the brilliance of the stones, this is not obvious when brooch is worn. The clasp appears to be a replacement. There also is some discoloration on the metal of the clips of the earrings, although this does not show when earrings are worn. Please see photos for further information and email with any questions. (These pieces display many of the well known attributes of D & E including the type of metalwork, the use of over the top stones and one of the types of clip backs that are used by D & E.)
