My heart was full of butterflies when I first laid eyes on this pretty parure. A vintage signed Original by Robert set with matching necklace and earrings. The color purple is quite rare to find and the design is absolutely to die for. A lacy glittering confection that is very feminine and romantic. Sure to make you sigh... Robert Levy of New York Fashioncraft was the designer of this beautiful set and his designs kept up with the best of Miriam Haskell and DeMario, as he used fine Austrian rhinestones, crystals and findings. His designs were so highly coveted due to their quality and resemblance of real jewels that they were featured in Hollywood films and as such commanded a high price in their day. It wasn't uncommon to see a price tag of $50 to $70 for a demi parure of earrings and bracelet. My daughter felt like a Princess while modeling this for me. The necklace has three strands combining purple glass beads and creamy rich faux pearls. The central design features three bouquets of wired on accents that are quite three dimensional and eye catching. The elements include flowers accented with flat back rhinestones, glass purple beads, rosettes of seed pearls set among golden branches and each "spray has a filgree capped baroque pearl dangling below. The matching earrings are delightful on the ear. Condition is excellent with the only tiny flaw being a slight amount of nacre loss to only one of the baroque pearls and some verdigris to the caps. Otherwise amazing! The necklace measures 15 1/2" end to end and the central design measures 3" by 1 1/4". The earrings measure 1 1/4". It is easy to extend the necklace if you want more length. Signed with the Original by Robert plaque on the back of the design element. This set will come to you in a presentation foil box ready for gift giving to that someone special.. maybe you!
