This is a gorgeous DeLizza & Elster (aka: Juliana or D & E) gray rhinestone and faux pearl leaf brooch! There are a lot of wonderful D & E pieces available, however, this large leaf/flower design is unique. The double stem is studded in gray rhinestones, with larger stones forming the base of the design. The center of the flower is loaded with dangles of faux pearls and gray, aurora borealis coated crystals. The back is gold toned. There is a lot of great detail to this pin - a real eye catcher!
Measurements: 2 3/8" across and 2 3/4" tall. It weighs approximately 1.75 ounces.
Condition: There is minor peeling to a few of the baroque faux pearls. One wire has no crystal or pearl on it, but it isn't missed! The gold metal plating is in great shape. Please review all photographs carefully, as they form an important part of the description.
Marks: DeLizza and Elster jewelry was not marked and is identified by characteristics or by being verified. The link to the Juliana Research site can be accessed via my "Favorite Links." This pin has the unique "pudding" between some of the stone settings. It also has the four prong set stones, embedded rivets, the directly attached pin back, and the dangling crystals - all characteristic of D & E jewelry.
