From an estate collection that included “book pieces” of Delizza & Elster rhinestone jewelry comes this “D & E” style, large and beautiful stacked, dome brooch. Fully 3 ½” long by 1 ¾” wide, its focal point at the highest point is a huge and virtually new condition unfoiled emerald cut Montana Blue stone. On each end of that focal stone is an unfoiled Montana Blue teardrop, with six matching unfoiled teadrops on each side, and a large Aurora Borealis Chaton accent in the center of each side. A border of sparkling, smaller blue Aurora Borealis Chatons encircles the brooch.
This is in the style and construction of Delizza & Elster: unfoiled stones in a variety of shapes, open-back construction, Rhodium plated metal, huge center stone, as well as the brooch being very large and dramatic, and the Montana Blue that was very popular with D&E. All stones are prong set and secure, and the clasp, hinge and pin all work. The huge center stone and teardrops are in wonderful condition, with no wear visible without a magnifying glass or jeweler’s loupe. AB stones are usually more prone to wear, though these do not show excessive wear, but please see all photos and ask any questions. This is a strikingly beautiful, large vintage domed brooch, and though not a “book piece,” it is consistent with Delizza and Elster’s fabulous designs, construction and materials.
If you are sending this to someone at another address as a gift, I have Holiday, Hanukkah, and blank cards for other occasions, which I can include with a brief message from you, and gift wrap is either blue with gold designs, or red plaid.
