The HAR Jewelry Company has long been renowned for their inimitable quality and show-stopping designs.
This famous vintage set, consisting of a Fantasy Cobra necklace and earrings, holds the distinction of being one of the company's rarest and most collectible.
The necklace is made up of a dazzling array of amber and AB rhinestones set into opulent green enamel.
Wonderful textured detailing gives the snake a decidedly reptilian appearance; some of the gold tone metals show through from underneath, making the snake's "scales" shimmer in the light.
Brilliant, iridescent lava stones are prong-set on the necklace; every angle surprises with a different dance of color and light.
Twisting gold colored chain makes up the rest of the necklace. A nesting box clasp is affixed to the underside of the cobra's head and tail, fastening in the front.
Each earring features a hooded cobra's head adorned with the same beautiful green enamel as the necklace. Marquise, round, and pear-amber and AB rhinestones provide exquisite embellishment while a glimmering lava stone near the snake's face sparkles in the light.
One earring exhibits the "HAR©" hallmark on the reverse; this is typical. Classic hinge clips on each make the earrings wonderfully secure and comfortable to wear.
Both earrings and necklace are in impeccable condition, exhibiting no enamel loss, scratching, wear and have all original rhinestones.
This is one of the most collectible designs by the Hargo Creations out of New York. Co. It is a show stopping necklace and earring set. Not only is it beautiful, it is an investment set.
