The craftsmanship of this set is impressive, as is the large size, and deep blue jewels. The pictures can't possible do this set justice, but if you are knowledgeable of antique jewelry, I'm sure you know how spectacular this is. The necklace measures 18 inches long, and has a brass colored hook closure, that may not be original to the piece. The pendant measures 1&3/4 inches long, not including the bale, and 1&1/8 inch wide. It weighs over 2&1/2 ounces! The large, bold bracelet is also a magnificent piece of art, that weighs over 3&1/2 ounces. It has the original, squeeze style clasp that works perfectly. It's just under 7 inches long. The 5, individual links are the same size as the pendant on the necklace. I consider it to be in very good condition, for it's age. There is some wear to the silver plating. There are a couple of tiny scratches on the face of 2 of the deep, blue stones, that can only be seen when held into direct light. As if this wasn't enough bling, the set includes a pair of fabulous, matching clip back earrings. They measure 1&1/4 inch long, by 7/8 wide and are in excellent condition with the original clip backs that work perfectly. All 3 pieces were embellished with faux seed pearls that are glued in place. Three on the tops, and three on the bottoms, of each blue stone. Several of these are missing, as you can see in the photos. They aren't hard to find, and would be easy to replace. If I were keeping the set (and I'm very tempted to do so!)I would remove them all, as I like the look better without them. If you look at the necklace, all of the pearls are missing, and I think it looks just fine! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PHOTOS ARE ENLARGED, TO SHOW DETAIL.
I currently have several pieces of vintage, costume jewelry, and antique jewelry in my shop, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type the word, "jewelry" in the search box at the top of this page.
