This magnificent demi-parure by Weiss is a design symphony of rhinestone colors, shapes, and sizes that work together to dazzle the eye! The round brooch (Carroll, 2008) and earrings are surrounded by aurora borealis accents and contain beautiful prong-set marquise, chatons, pear-cut and brilliants in shades of blues from the darkest midnight blue, to the palest baby blue and greens that range from the deepest sage to medium green and soft spring peridot.
Set in silvertone rhodium plating, the sparkling domed brooch measures 2" in diameter. It closes in the back with a rolling barrel clasp and pin mechanism which has slight finish loss in a small section in the center of the pin arm. The brooch is signed WEISS © in an oval cartouche on the back. Measuring 1" in diameter the luminous and fiery clip-on earrings are signed WEISS on the backs of the clips.
This beautiful demi is a spectacular example of Weiss's design innovation and signature use of only the very best in Austrian rhinestones!
I guarantee this beautiful jewelry to be authentic vintage Weiss and not a contemporary reproduction.
