This is a beautifully elegant Juliana set of necklace and clip on earrings, in a japanned setting, with faux haematite skinny navettes and fancy concave oval stones, together with a faux jet round cabochon in the centre of the necklace, and smoky grey rhinestones, for accent and all along the length of the necklace. It is not signed, as Juliana jewellery (made by De Lizza & Elster) was marked only with a paper hang-tag. The set is in excellent condition. The necklace is 17 inches long and the central pendant is just over 2 inches long. The earrings are 1 ¼ inches long. The pieces really sparkle, and I think you can see from the pictures that the faux haematite stones are like little mirrors, with a very reflective silvery-grey finish. I think this design has real `class'!
Matching pieces to this set appear on p. 110 of 'The art of Juliana jewelry' by Katerina Musetti.
