Vintage c. 1950 Vogue Milk Glass & Rhinestone Necklace/Earring Demi Parure
Vintage late 1940s into early 1950s necklace and clipback earrings demi-parure from the Vogue Jewelry Company features white milk glass and clear rhinestone rondelles, set in silvertoned metal.
The 14.5” choker-length necklace is strung on wire and has a hook and extender chain closure. The 1” earrings consist of a two-layer cluster design, handwired to a perforated metal back, and have French earring clips.
The earrings are marked “VOGUE”; the necklace is unmarked. Founded in the mid-1930s by Jack Gilbert, George Grand, and Harold Shapiro (father of Bernard, of Les Bernard fame), the New York City-based Vogue Jewelry Company perfected its “Dresden Pearls” in the early 50s; according to a 1951 article, they were made by dipping “alabaster glass” beads (like the ones in this demi) in a coloring and pearlizing solution, and then baking them. White glass jewelry was enormously popular in the late 40s and early 50s.
This lovely set is in excellent condition with no flaws to note.
