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 gold-tone brooch and clip earrings has a combination of open and closed back, prong mounted sets. There are round and marquise rootbeer rhinestones; round amber rhinestones and moulded glass marquise-shaped leaves in shaded rootbeer/amber hues. The gold-tone findings are a combination of shiny and textured matt finish which creates a wonderful contrast. The brooch measures 3" long; 2" wide with a safely clasp mechanism.; the clip earrings are 1 1/4" in length. Near mint condition with fantastic color and presentation.
