This is a gorgeous collection! Whether called "Spanish Style Collection" ~ 1989 or "The Allure of silver" ~ 1986 (they are exactly the same design ~ only the name & dates are different), this collection shines and is a very nice for your favorite fashion attire.
Jose Maria Barrera collaborated with Avon so they could join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry ~ and indeed, this is high end!
This is a very large necklace, but is surprisingly very light. The necklace measures approximately 18"-20" due to the adjustable chain section, giving you some control over the length and where you want it to lay on your neck. The focal point of this necklace is the 5-sided center piece, measuring approximately 2" across, that has an elaborate metal work design featuring an open-work filigree design where only the leaves are solid. Continuing the beauty, and focal points in their own right, each side of the necklace continues the beautiful open-work filigree metal art work another approximately 4".
The clip earrings are a smaller version of the center piece of the necklace with only minor changes. They measure approximately 1 1/2" in diameter and have only one line of open-work filigree and is eight sided. The inside work is identical on each piece. Again, with the clip earrings being a smaller version. One note, the clip earrings are a slightly different color than the necklace, but this is only noticeable when you have them close together. The price has been adjusted for this.
On the back of each piece is signed "Barrera for Avon". Although not included, I have listed the leaflet that came with this collection when new telling more details of what it is made of, i.e. silver plating "protected by Avon Anti-Tarnish Shield," and also how to take care of it." The information on the leaflet follows.
"THE ALLURE OF SILVER
Artfully crafted exclusively for Avon, this design reflects the timeless elegance and shimmering luster of silver. The polished beauty of these silver-plated earrings is protected by Avon Anti-Tarnish Shield, a special tarnish resistant finish. To preserve this finish, wipe with a damp cloth, dry with a soft one. NEVER USE SILVER POLISH, JEWELRY CLEANER OR ANY ABRASIVE CLEANER.
