Castlecliff's stunning glass stone studded Mogul Jewels of India bracelet and earrings are being offered for your consideration. The set is in excellent vintage condition.
Castlecliff's ad motto starting in 1945 until their end in 1970 was "The Talked about Jewelry" and almost every piece of their jewelry we have picked up makes us realize why. The company began life in 1937 as Castlemark and signed its creations briefly by the same name from 1941 until the name change to Castlecliff in 1945; finding some of those early scarce signed pieces can truly be a FIND! Their beautiful designs, use of fine components, excellent construction and execution; rank them among the finest jewelry companies the U.S.A. has ever produced. Wonderful designers too; a name many of you will recognize, like Larry Vrba, had his historical design beginnings there as head designer. Fascinating, beautiful and innovative pieces like this one remain in excellent condition after all these years and they are always on our hunt list.
Castlecliff called this series of their bracelets, " Beauty Bands "; this Moghul Jewels of India series is one of our favorites! They coupled this bracelet with their popular "Clipless" earrings; this type earring is very collectible in today's vintage market and is very comfortable to wear ( we were not able to keep this style earring in our shop for very long ) they are very much like miniature clamper bracelets! The bracelet's inside diameter measures 2 1/4 by 1 7/8 inches and has a properly functioning hinge and snap closure. It is signed, Castlecliff, in an oval cartouche inside the bracelet and is slightly more than 3/8 in or 0.45 inch wide. The earrings measure 1 1/8 inch diameter by 1/4 inch wide. All of the cabochons are securely in place; appear to be original and free of defects. Light desirable age appropriate mellowing and finish wear to the gilding are all that is reportable with this magnificent find for your treasure chest, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. This set is the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles in your wardrobe! (J9292)
