Magnificent, antique jeweled Hungarian Jewelry Suite, dating to the 19th Century. The antique Suite consists of three gorgeous matching pieces---Bracelet, Earrings and Brooch.
The wide antique Hungarian Bracelet has multiple oval-shaped links, each with a large Baroque Pearl in their centers and surrounded by alternating Seed Pearls and Blue Stones, set in handsome Silver Gilt mountings. The pair of antique, long, dangly chandelier Hungarian Earrings is set with Seed Pearls and Blue Stones and set in Silver Gilt mountings. The blue stones were meant to resemble blue Sapphires. They are very rich in color and the the juxtaposition of the white Pearls makes for a,tremendous design using color, contrast and pattern.
The gorgeous long Earrings have non-pierced vice backs. The large antique Hungarian Brooch has a large Baroque Pearl set into the center and has an alternating Seed Pearl and blue Stone design, as in the Bracelet. Note the pinwheel-like design on the wide border. The Brooch is also set in Silver Gilt. The Brooch and Bracelet are decorated on their reverses as well.
The pieces are hallmarked, although the marks are too small to make out, even under magnification. Note, one of the hallmarks on the Earrings looks to be '800' (the European mark for Silver). The Hallmarks locations: BRACELET - located on the tongue / BROOCH - located on edge of the C-Clasp / EARRINGS - located on each of the gilted Silver Earring Loop.
The antique Hungarian Jewelry Set is quite substantial in size, with the Bracelet measuring 7" long and 1 1/4" wide, the Brooch measuring 1 3/4" in diameter and the Earrings measuring 2 1/4" long and 1 1/8" wide at their widest point. Absolutely gorgeous----a tremendous set and in very good condition. A wonderful addition for any Hungarian Jewelry Collector. Photographs were taken with and without a flash and the Set shows very well. Just as beautiful in person!
