Striking Egyptian Revival parure by Eugene features a brushed gold-plated collar with faux coral and turquoise embellishments and imitation pearls. The same design is picked up in the bracelet; the clasps on both pieces, shown in detail, are truly spectacular and measure over an inch in length. The matching earrings are clip style.

This set likely dates to the early 1960's. The filming of Cleopatra starring Elizabeth Taylor began in 1959 and wrapped up sometime in 1961; it is likely this set was made to coincide with the much anticipated movie's release.

Eugene Schultz was born in 1911 and died in 1964. He worked in a number of different areas of design including costume, greeting cards, and fashion. His jewelry business spanned just 10 years, from 1952-62. According to Eugene's nephew, Schultz may have worked briefly for Miriam Haskell. You can see that many design elements, workmanship, quality of materials, and attention to detail are very similar to Haskell, as is the overall design of this set. Because of his short tenure as jewelry maker, a complete parure by Eugene is the rarest of the rare. Condition: there is some darkening on one of the bracelet links; otherwise this set is in remarkable condition.
