I happen to really adore this color combination and it is not an easy find. It is also just perfect for the summer! This Unsigned Weiss set has Gorgeous Bright and glowing Blue Rhinestones. The clamper is in perfect condition and the hinge is tight and springy. The earrings are also in perfect condition with the clips also very tight and wonderful.
The set as no dark or dead rhinestones. The clamper has a 7/8" wall height. The inside measurement is 2 1/4" x 2 1/8". The earrings measure 1" across. The material that was used is called thermoplastic. It came right on the heels of when Bakelite factories were shut down. Being Bakelite contained Formaldehyde in its mix, it was later found to be a carcinogenic. Also, Weiss made jewelry for two markets. The higher end department stores, and the smaller mom and pop shops. All of the pieces were the same only the department stores demanded higher prices and Weiss would then hallmark those pieces. To keep the costs down for the mom and pop shops, no hallmark was issued.
If you are a Weiss collector this is a wonderful set to add to your collection. This also would work wonderfully into a bakelite collection. American Made, Circa 1950. Questions are always welcome.
