We have recently come across a massive quantity of all signed EUGENE jewelry. An absolutely delightful and rare opportunity to get your hands on some very hard to find pieces!
This is a fabulous vintage demi parure which was made and signed by EUGENE.
The set features three graduated strands of perfect pink crystals, pink aurora borealis crystals, and pink and clear glass beads with gold swirls. Rhinestones are used on end clasps. Hand wired to filigree metal frame on earrings.
The necklace measures 18 1/2" using the innermost strand closest to the neck. It is about 1 1/2" wide. Each clip earring measures 1 1/8" in diameter.
Great info on EUGENE, the designer... Eugene Schultz once worked for Miriam Haskell, but had his own business, Eugene Jewelry Co., and designed his own line of costume jewelry for about 10 years, beginning in 1962. Prior to that he had worked as a costumer most notably for the Perry Como Show. Eugene jewelry pieces often had very decorative clasps. Eugene pieces were also handmade and they looked similar to Miriam Haskell pieces as they were all hand wired to filigree frames and used the same components and materials.
