Deep red faceted rhinestones and red aurora borealis stones all prong set in a gold plated setting make this signed Weiss vintage set a must have. All pieces are signed Weiss, indicating they are early 1950s, after aurora borealis stones were available and before companies began using copyright symbols. Stones are just stunning.
