Check out this extra special 1960s vintage Capri rhinestone and faux turquoise brooch and earrings set. In goldtone, the demi features a tiered / domed gently curved shape generously sprinkled with chaton and marquise rhinestones in ruby red, emerald green, and marine blue colors. This set pops with the speckled faux turquoise marquise cabochons interspersed throughout. Capri scores big time with superb color choices and stone combinations. Finely textured goldtone roping frame stones as they rise to the top. Florenza produced Capri for a time and their influence can definitely be seen in this set. From the rope like borders to the stone setting technique, hints of that Florenza flavor waft through.
The set includes the brooch, at approximately 3 inches x 1 1/4 inches with a 1/2 inch profile or dome. Matching clip earrings are about 1 1/8 inches x 3/4 inch.
Condition of this demi is excellent / pristine vintage. All stones are intact with excellent color retention. Rhinestones remain brilliant. All glass faux turquoise cabs intact with wonderful striations / speckling and coloring. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Pin back and earrings clips strong and secure. No damage / no repairs.
Reverse of brooch is signed in script "Capri". Copyright symbol precedes. Although the earrings are not signed they are a definite part of this set. Another case in point -- keep those sets together!
If you're into beautiful and unusual color and stone combinations add these wonderful examples to your vintage jewelry collection. Capri's top of the line.
