This is an outstanding vintage parure set of iridescent bubble jewels with original pink satin ribbon hang tag that says Richelieu De Luxe on one side and Iridelle Reg. US Pat. Off. on the other side. The ribbon was originally attached to the necklace but is loose now. The Richelieu Iridelle brand was made by Joseph H. Meyer & Bros. of Brooklyn, NY, in business from 1911. I estimate that this set dates from circa late 1950s -1960s. The set includes the double strand necklace with lovely marked sterling silver clasp, screw type earrings with marked sterling backs, a clip brooch, and memory wire bracelet. All pieces feature the same iridescent bubble beads.
The necklace measures 16" wearable length. The bracelet is flexible and adjusts to variable wrist sizes from small to large. The earrings are slightly over 1" long. The clip measures 1.5" x 1.25".
Condition: The largest beads of the earrings have some splitting of the iridescent coating. The clip has a couple of spots of coating loss as well. Otherwise good condition.
This is a such a happy set. A great set to wear with summer outfits.
