This is a very elaborate and exquisite Juliana DeLizza & Elster Rhinestone Brooch with Aurora Borealis and clear rhinestones done in 3 tiers. The top tier has the signature wire-over construction large clear round ice rhinestone surrounded by smaller aurora borealis rhinestones. The second tier is the spray of rhinestones splaying out from the center of the brooch. Each spray has two or three rhinestones on it. The bottom and base tier has long slender navettes with open backs in a half flower design while a very large round open back clear rhinestone sits surrounded by aurora borealis rhinestones and flanked by a row of closed back sparkling round rhinestones. The setting is gold tone with built in pin assembly and generous use of solder indicative of a Juliana piece. The brooch is in almost perfect condition. All the stones are beautifully sparkly and the gold tone very shiny and bright. One aurora borealis stone sits in the prong setting at a tilt because the round setting has a little dent to it thus preventing the stone to lie flat and snugly. This stone and setting is just to the right of the wire-over right along the bottom (it may have been dropped). This brooch is so gorgeous and elaborate and deliciously sparkly. It measures 2" high and 2 1/4" wide and the tiers give it 1" thickness so it has depth and looks different depending upon the angle you look at it. Any coloration in the rhinestones is a reflection of the black camera lens.
