Brilliant, Glitzy, Gorgeous butterfly set by Juliana. Breathtakingly beautiful butterfly set ablaze with fiery rhinestones. Rhinestone colors of fiery gold and topaz just sparkle and are loaded with glitz.
Brooch has great dimensionality. The wings are not flat, but have been gently sculpted so that the centers of each section are domed. This is seen much better in person than my photos show. Wings are set with chaton stones – the center of the wings has several sizes of chatons in golden champagne color. Smaller topaz stones trim the entire wing sections. Wings are dotted with orange cabochon glass stones. Body features a lovely deep topaz elongated navette rhinestone. Head and antennae are composed of chaton topaz stones.
Each and every single stone that composes this piece has been prong set. Quite a task because of the shape of the wings and the angles that the stones have been placed.
Condition of this set is absolutely fantastic. Absolutely no metal loss. Even though this set was produced many years ago, it looks like new.
Earrings clip on easily and attach securely. Brooch is 2-3/8" x 2-1/4". Earrings are 1-1/4" x 3/4".
The clip back of the earrings are those typically used by Juliana and the construction, design and even the puddling help to attribute this set being made by Juliana.
This may be the prettiest butterfly brooch that I have come across. It has over the top glitziness,
