This is a vintage sterling silver and Chrysophrase stone brooch and earrings or (2) pendants demi-parure, or small set. Hand crafted in Mexico.
The earrings are missing their French wire hangers, or if you prefer hang one from a necklace as a pendant (with a spare!). The brooch features a simple c-clasp with no locking.
The brooch is marked Sterling and Mexico. The smaller pieces are not marked but test for sterling silver.
Chrysophrase is a green gem stone that varies in shade from light green to dark green because of nickle content. It is a type of chalcedony, which is usually blue. Like all chalcedony, chrysoprase has a hardness of 6 - 7 on the MOHS hardness scale.
CONDITION: great pre-owned condition. I did not polish this set because the level of patina is such a personal choice.
SIZE: brooch 2 ¼" by 2 ½". Earrings or necklace pendants are 1" by 1 ¼". ( 10603-Parure )
