This Emmons molded glass gold tone bracelet, from their mid century Her Majesty line, is a book piece and was featured in an ad campaign as a Hostess Set to entice women to become company representatives. Hostess Sets are rare as they were not available to the public, they were rewards given to the companies most successful salespersons. According to Cathryn Dippo, a major collector and author of the book Emmons Fashion Magic Jewelry, "Emmons Fashion Magic was the first jewelry to be sold at home parties, between 1949 and 1981, preceding its sister company, Sarah Coventry. Known for its versatility and quality, Emmons jewelry is highly collectible today and deserves a place in all costume jewelry collections.". The glass stones are magnificent, they are huge with a high profile, each one measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches by 1/2 inch, and are molded in a star burst design that literally glows reflecting colors that range from smoky topaz to honey amber. These molded cabochons are crown set in textured gold tone and accented with emerald green rhinestone chatons. The bracelet measures 7 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches and has a fold over clasp. I made the pendant by adding a jump ring and chain to a clipless earring and it is included at no cost. The bracelet is signed Emmons and is in excellent vintage condition, the earring was signed on the missing clip, and is also in excellent condition. The pictures do not adequately represent the impressive dazzle of these pieces, it's like wearing carved gems exploding with celestial brilliance.
The entire Her Majesty Hostess Set, bracelet, pin/pendant and earrings, is featured on page 323 of Julia Carroll's Collecting Costume Jewelry 202.
