Set is composed of matching brooch and earrings. Fabulous little camphor stones are referred to as satin glass ribbed givre’ stones or sunburst today, but Mr. DeLizza referred to them as oval pillowcase stones. Lovely stones are oval and look carved with a lovely shimmering, bright rhinestone center.
Accents of bright orange, lighter orange, topaz and clear rhinestones are interspersed throughout the multi-tiered brooch. Glistening Gold tone textured leaves with excellent detailed veining adorn both the brooch and earrings.
Brooch is composed of four light topaz colored pillowcase or cushion stones. These stones seem to emit a lovely light from within and appear to glow. Earrings each have one pillowcase stone and a rhinestone of each color as described above. The clip backs are typical of Juliana’s. Siblings to this set can be found on pages 203 and 204 of Ann Pitman’s Juliana Jewelry Reference Delizza & Elster Identification and Value Guide.
Condition is near excellent vintage. I just noticed a very, very tiny miniscule surface chip area on one of the creases of a pillowcase stone on the brooch. Just about impossible to see. Only if you inspect the brooch closely while turning it under bright light can you see it at all. Pictures don’t pick it up. Brooch measures 2 1/4" by 1 3/4" and is layered..The matching clip on earrings measure 1 1/4" by 3/4. "Total satisfaction guaranteed. This is one gorgeous Demi Parure.
