DESCRIPTION: HOLY SMOKES! Breathtaking and Dazzling, this SET will take your breath away. Giant faceted open-back Sapphire Glass stones set in a satin goldplated deco style Square Link Necklace & Bracelet. Each link is connected with a pave encrusted link and attaches to the sapphire stones that are flanked with baguettes and chatons.
Necklace and bracelet have pave encrusted foldover clasps. These pieces are quite substantial and have some weight to them. The sheer size of the stones and their thickness add a great deal of weight. THIS IS A SHOWSTOPPER! The amazing thing about this set is you can dress it up or dress it down. I can see this with a great blazer and jeans or I can see it with an incredible evening dress. Use your imagination!
REFERENCES: Although these pieces are not signed, I did find the stone-setter's mark "42" on the bracelet but I could not find it on the necklace. It is rare, but it is known that some early Trifari pieces were marked with the stone-setter's mark only. Also, my research found other pieces in this line referenced as Trifari on a VERY well-known reputable website. Feel free to message me and I will tell you exactly where to find the other pieces.
MEASUREMENTS: Necklace measures 16 1/4" L x 1" wide at center stone. Center stone and setting measures 1 1/4" x 1". The stone itself measures 25mm x 20mm and 1/2" deep! The stones are massive and come to pyramid soft point underneath. Bracelet measures 6 3/4" L x 1" wide at center stone. Center stone is the same size as the center stone on the necklace.
CONDITION: Excellent collector quality. All stones look bright and clear. The giant sapphire stones are fabulous. I did see a couple small fleabites on one stone on the necklace and one fleabite on one stone on the bracelet, only found with my loop. THIS SET IS SO MUCH MORE STUNNING THAT MY PHOTOS CAN DEPICT. TRULY AMAZING!
