Narrow emerald green navette shaped rhinestones with blue aurora borealis rhinestones adorn this necklace and clip earring set. Juliana pieces were not marked so we rely on the stones used and the very distinct manufacturing techniques used to identify it. Similar pieces can be seen on pg 264 of Ann Pittman's "Juliana Jewelry Reference" collectors book. This is a stunning set to own and wear.
Necklace: 17 inches long plus 2 inch drop; Clip earrings: almost 1.5 inches long; Condition: Excellent; Circa: 1960s
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. The company manufactured for several other leading names.
Jewelry is like the perfect spice, it compliments what is already there!
