This is a Vintage 1960s Juliana Green Heliotrope Rhinestone Parure Set that includes the Necklace, Brooch and Earrings Gorgeous HTF Book Piece. This hard to find set is unbelievably stunning and more so in real life.
This is one of the most highly sought after and high end Juliana parures. It features all of the beautiful vivid fall colors. For reference, please see Juliana Jewelry Reference/Identification and Value Guide by Ann Pitman page 40-41 and The Art of Juliana Jewelry by Katerina Musetti page 161. Actually, this necklace is even more elaborate than some of the related examples posted in these books as it has 7 large green heliotrope rhinestone encrusted links. The dramatic watermelon stones are eye dazzlers, but the rich autumn colors of cognac, topaz, forest green, and iridescent aurora borealis rhinestones as well as the large sparkling green heliotrope stones make this parure fit for a royal monarch.
The set does not look like it was ever worn. The rhinestones are extremely brilliant and sparkly, and the gold tone/plated setting is particularly shiny on all the pieces. The collar necklace is about 17 inches long, and the 2 1/8 inch long domed brooch has a bail for a necklace chain. The earring clips are tight. There are no apologies or issues with this set. Unbelievably gorgeous and a work of art!
