BOOK PIECE: Avon jewelry authority and author Sandra Sturdivant, in her book, "Identifying AVON JEWELRY", described this set as "Boldly striped in gold and black, these circular hoops bear gold motifs embossed with zebra faces and rimmed with sparkling rhinestones."
Elizabeth Taylor collaborated with Avon to create a high end jewelry line at prices more women could afford. As with all of her designs for Avon, Ms Taylor spared no detail which helped Avon join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry. Anything with Elizabeth Taylor's name is indeed high fashion. Elizabeth Taylor created high end fashion pieces that were sure to please and this is no exception.
This beautiful designer signed Avon Elizabeth Taylor "Zebra Stripe Collection" was inspired by a trip to Africa for seven weeks that Elizabeth Taylor made with her husband, Richard Burton. Staying at a game lodge in Botswana, Elizabeth became entranced with the beauty of the country and its wildlife. Creating this gorgeous Zebra Stripe Collection came from her love of the animals, in this case, the zebras. This Zebra Stripe Collection is rare to find and rare to own.
The earrings "knocked my socks off" when I first opened them to see their beauty! The pictures just cannot hold the captivating beauty of these clip earrings. They have BOLD striped hoops in the colors gold and black in the shape of door knockers. They are held together by a middle section that has raised zebra heads between two columns of crystal rhinestones. They measure approximately 1 5/8" wide and 1 ¾" tall.
The bangle bracelet is black and has 2 sets of gold-tone metal motifs opposite each other that look like zebra stripes. The stripes are between two rows of 14 each of sparkling rhinestones for a total of 56 sparkling rhinestones. Its width is approximately ½" wide and at the gold-tone metal parts it is approximately ¾" wide.
These were pre-owned but were never worn or worn very little. There are no indications of dullness, tarnish, or wear and nothing missing, broken, bruised or bumped. They each come in their original box.
