Vintage Robert De Mario brooch and earrings with sparkling rhinestones, faux pearls in shades of silver and grey, antiqued silver filigree elements and shiny art glass with facet glass are all layered to form these wonderful floral corsage like pieces, all signed by their creator, De Mario, and they are in excellent vintage condition .
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. Each of the pieces is signed, De Mario N. Y., without the copyright symbol indicating creation before 1955. A gorgeous, classic and striking addition to any collection; the perfect accessory for so many occasions, events and ensembles. When examined closely these display desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from their stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the pieces, they will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their vintage previous 60 to 65 beautiful years of life. Your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome.
Robert De Mario, 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! (L0295)
