You will ignite the night with this outstanding set of vintage jewels!
These are an estate find and are absolutely one of the most beautiful matching sets of quality vintage jewelry that we have had the pleasure to offer. The brooch and earrings are beautifully designed and are of superb quality.
It is true.... The photographs do not do these pieces justice in vibrancy of color! This set is in vintage mint condition and would make a most treasured gift to anyone who appreciate the biggest of bling.
In fact, a local fine artist was so intrigued by this set that she wanted to borrow the pieces to use in a still life painting! The crystal rhinestones are cut into a multitude of gem shapes and there appear to be well over 150 set into the brooch alone.
The magnificent brooch is designed in a convex shape. It is built like a work of architecture with several layers of crystal rhinestones. This creates a magnificent 3-dimensional effect. Each stone is hand set into prong mountings, pinned into place and hand-soldered.
There are literally stacks of rhinestones that make up this brooch and it is a joy to examine the ever changing color. The earrings are made from matching rhinestones...likewise, beautifully set.
Most unfortunately, there is no maker's mark. The brooch measures 2.75 inches or 7 cm across and is slightly over 1/4 inch or 1 cm in depth. The earrings measure 1-1/8 inch across or slightly over 2.5 cm at the widest point. Please refer to the photographs.
