Awesome De Mario brooch and earrings with sparkling rhinestones, exotic art glass, faux pearls in shades of charcoal and all layered together with antiqued silver filigree to form these wonderful floral corsage pieces being offered for your consideration. All these gorgeous pieces are signed by the creator, DeMario. They are in excellent vintage condition too.
Robert DeMario, the designer of this set is referred to as a disciple of Miriam Haskell in many reference books and although Haskell Jewelry denies that he ever worked for them, her influence on his construction and designs is undeniable. De Mario Jewelry (1945 - 1960) has never been plentiful in the market place and it is becoming difficult to find pieces of jewelry by this magnificent designer in good condition let alone as fine as those offered here. His name has for decades been a coveted find for the most discriminating lover and/or collector of fine quality costume jewelry!
Each of the pieces is signed, De Mario N. Y., without the copyright symbol indicating creation before 1955. The brooch measures a large, 2 3/8 inches in diameter and the earrings are equally large at 1 3/8 inches long by 7/8 inch wide. These display only desirable age appropriate light mellowing and light wear to the finish nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. A gorgeous, classic and striking De Mario addition to any collection; the perfect accessory for so many occasions, events and ensembles! (J0295)
