Figurals are a category of collectibles in themselves and D&E, Delizza & Elster made some very wonderful examples. This bird in flight brooch consists of red, pink and pink aurora borealis (AB) rhinestones as well as clear AB stones that surround the body. Just a lovely piece in excellent condition.
Size: 2.5 x 2.25 inches; Circa: 1963
Creators of the "Juliana" line of jewelry, William Delizza and Harold Elster founded the Delizza & Elster jewelry company in 1947. Only about 2000 pieces of "Juliana" vintage costume jewelry were ever made under that name. William De Lizza was the main designer of Delizza & Elster's open line (not to be confused with Juliana) and there were other design apprentices on staff as well. The company ceased production in 1990. Their line of Juliana is some of the most fabulous and sought after jewelry today.
