For your consideration I am offering this iconic cameo art glass and double tiered rhinestone brooch / pendant combination in goldtone by Delizza & Elster (D & E). It can be seen multiply in the Cameo section of Katerina Musetti's "The Art of Juliana Jewelry". Two tiers of chaton rhinestones in deep citrine, topaz and black surround the oval glass faux tortoise shell art glass with high relief cameo atop. A conceal hook is soldered at reverse's top for use with your favorite chain as a pendant. Colors, sparkle and luster are signature D & E.
The pin / pendant measures about 2 1/2 inches x 2 1/16 inches with a maximum 5/8 inch profile.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant with excellent color retention. Faux tortoise shell and cameo free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Goldtone finish intact, front and back. Pin back and hook strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Although in excellent vintage condition please keep in mind that this is a vintage piece, circa late 1960s, has been loved and appreciated, and will not appear brand new. That said...if you know Delizza & Elster's pieces, aka Juliana, you know the quality and curb appeal. Wonderful colors, stone composition and combinations are their trademarks. The pictured cameo brooch / pendant is one of their often cited pieces.
Not signed, as is the rule for most D & E jewelry, the cameo pin / pendant has all the earmarks of Delizza & Elster's work. It is further referenced and photographed in the above mentioned book and is guaranteed to be by this maker.
Please add $5.00 for shipping. Payment is due within five days of sale. Thanks for taking a look!
