This is a charming 4 Piece complete Parure (set) by Hollycraft. It includes a necklace, cuff bracelet, earrings and a ring. The findings are antiqued silver-tone filigree with very large turquoise blue color plastic "stones
I have a page from one of their old advertisements explaining how this "POP-IN" takes place. The plastic "stones" were changeable if you bought the other color sets, for an ever changing array of jewelry. This set is ONLY in the turquoise-blue color.
MARKS: This mark is from the 1960's or 1970's. The bracelet, earrings and ring are signed, while the necklace is not signed. Not all Hollycraft jewelry is marked.
SIZE: The NECKLACE has a 26" long chain and the central medallion with tassels measures 5" long.
The BRACELET has the Hollycraft double-hinged design making it comfortable for both small to large wrists The bracelet is made to fit a 5 3/4" up to 8" wrist.
The EARRINGS measure 1 1/4" by 3/4". The RING is an adjustable design and fits up to a size 10.
CONDITION: It is in great pre-owned condition with the ONLY exception being the earrings missing their tassels. I am guessing the original owner removed them for personal reasons. Any color you see to the findings...other than silver-tone, is a result of my camera flash only.
HISTORY: Hollycraft was originally named Hollywood Jewelry Mfg. Co. in the 1930's. In the 1940's the name was changed to Hollycraft. This mark without the copyright is from 1965. They were a leader in the start of popular costume jewelry as we know it. Collectors love to buy their jewelry in sets, if that was the way it was made, and this is a real winner.
