This vintage Schiaparelli watermelon necklace, bracelet and earrings book set set resplendent with tourmaline headlight rhinestones nestled in gold plated crown settings is quite a treasure. A masterpiece of design, the watermelons, also known as Vitrail Medium, are huge and juicy and look quite regal atop the rich, golden rope settings, and the 2nd photo most accurately illustrates the colors. The rhinestones alone measure 3/4 inch each in the necklace and bracelet and 1 full inch in the earrings. I've taken pictures in different lights, with and without flash to illustrate the extraordinary colors these rhinestones express. Glorious gleams of pink, fuchsia, magenta, purple, green, blue and gold, blaze forth as light hits the multi faceted surfaces, it's enough to give a rainbow an inferiority complex. Each piece is signed Schiaparelli and everything is is excellent vintage condition, the rhinestones dazzle delightfully and the the gold plating looks wonderful with ever so slight wear in a couple of places on the back of the necklace. The adjustable necklace has a J hook and measures 16 inches, the bracelet measures 7 1/4 inches and has a safety chain, and the clip earrings measure 1 3/8 inches. This vibrant watermelon set is outstanding, it's Schiaparelli's most delicious design.
