Designer William DeLizza and Harold Elster founded the D & E Company in 1947 and it closed in the late 1990's. By 1953 the 'Juliana' line of unmarked jewelry was being produced. For only two years, 1967-1969, the pieces were marked with a hang tag. There are some identifying clues to Juliana pieces - figure eight puddling of soldering , attached pin assembly, prong-set stones, odd numbers used in construction and wire reinforcement to list some. They also made jewelry for many of the major costume jewelry companies of the era to their individual specifications.

This lovely fan-shaped brooch and earring set consists of gold-tone findings set with various size jet-black and aurora borealis rhinestones in round, oval and marquise shapes. The larger sets are regular or crown-prong set with closed backs. The brooch measures 2 3/4" in length, 2" in width with a safety clasp mechanism. The clip earrings measure 1 1/4" in length. Near mint condition. Classy set of all occasions.
