Lavish and Luscious – this is the magnificent rhinestone Easter Egg grand parure that gets its name from the stippled or speckled multi-colored oval cabochons.
This vintage set features the impressive bib necklace, wide 5-link bracelet, clip earrings, and brooch, all set with bold and beautiful cabochons and rhinestones.
A truly majestic set. Delizza & Elster created such breath-taking and complex jewelry designs with the most unusual stones.
The cabochons are accented with pear shaped rhinestones of dark green and topaz, and orange and pinkish iridescent aurora borealis rounds. Gold-plated base metal.
Juliana jewelry which was never signed, but just had a paper hang tag has all the classic characteristics: 5 link bracelet construction, figure 8 and “puddling” plating, long skinny navettes, fold over engraved clasp closure and engraved bracelet links,
open back and foiled rhinestones used on the same piece..
This is a confirmed Juliana set and appears in several books, and I have included the photo of the jewelry on a model from "The Art of Juliana Jewelry" by Katrina Musetti, p. 99, and photos from "Juliana Jewelry Reference" by Ann Pitman, p.22 . These books are invaluable in identifying Juliana jewelry .
Size: Bib necklace: over 15” long by 2 1/8” at its widest
Bracelet: 7.5” L by 1.5” W with attached safety chain
Brooch: 2 5/8” diameter
Clip Earrings: 1.5”L by 1 3/8”W
Very Good Vintage Condition. The bracelet has more wear than the other pieces. Only after I louped it, did I notice that the last smaller ‘Easter Egg” cabochon is missing two of four prongs, and the middle small cabochon is missing one prong, although all the stones are secure. This condition is reflected in the final price which is reduced from this grand parure’s usual price. I do not see any other missing prongs on the other pieces.
