This set makes me think of Elizabeth Taylor! She had several sparkling Sapphire pieces that complimented those gorgeous eyes.
A large, sapphire blue, faceted cabochon heads up a swinging drape or waterfall in the center of this brooch. The waterfall is backed and framed by three graduated circles of icy blue rhinestones built up to a dome giving the brooch an added dimension. The movable drape is also fashioned with three rows of the same startling blue rhinestones and then ends with another large sapphire blue stone. The clip earrings are a small replica of the center drape of the matching brooch. The back of the brooch and earrings appear to be Rhodium plated. All of the pieces are in Excellent Condition without wear. This is an absolutely stunning set!
The brooch measures 1 3/4" in diameter and the earrings 1 1/4" long.
