Avon jewelry authority and author Sandra Sturdivant, in her book "Identifying AVON JEWELRY", described this set as "draped in swirls of matte gold, these openwork hearts with pearly inlays, pearls and crystals embrace fiery opals."
From the fabulous Elizabeth Taylor (for Avon), "Heart of Hollywood Collection" brooch/pin and matching clip-on earrings are designed in the art deco style that was so popular in Hollywood's golden age. Ms Taylor spared no detail when she designed for Avon this beautiful deco styled pin and clip-on earrings allowing Avon to join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry.
This exquisite heart brooch/pin has an openwork heart draped in swirls and pleated with matte gold-tone with 22 k gold overlay and pearly heart inlay, along with a fiery center faux opal and surrounded by faux pave crystals and lustrous simulated pearls. It measures approximately 2 ½" by 2 ½" and on back, along with her name "Elizabeth Taylor" and "Avon" ~ is inscribed with an "E" in a lovely script selected by Elizabeth herself. The Art Deco design continues with the ornate clip-on earrings which feature pave crystals, a pearly inlay, faux pearls and a lovely fiery faux opal on each earring. Each is set in gold-tone with 22 k gold overlay and measure 1 ½" by 1 ½". These are signed in the same way as the brooch/pin described above with Elizabeth Taylor's name, Avon's name, and the lovely script "E".
These are in excellent condition with no signs of wear or discoloration. We do not have the original box or pouch, but will transport it in a jewelry box.
