Some of my favorite vintage designers from the 50’s and 60’s are those like ART who were able to replicate the late 1800 and early 1900’s style in their pieces. This set features such beautiful quality it will appear you are wearing an early piece for hundreds if not thousands of dollars. The pendant as well as the matching earrings have a glass center with a carved starburst design and a green “emerald” rhinestone center made to resemble camphor glass. The earrings are clip but could certainly be converted to pierced with an elegant fish hook or Italian wire. Wonderful art deco and nouveau detailing and the festoon chains add are the icing on the cake!
