This vintage demi-parure is, in one word: dazzling! It is intricate and feminine, yet it has a BIG personality and a stand-out look.
The set consists of a necklace and earrings that combine glittering rootbeer and chartreuse rhinestones with gorgeous gold-tone filigree.
The necklace just screams glamour. A long curb-chain on both sides comes to prong-set rootbeer rhinestones that alternate with slightly larger chartreuse rhinestones set on round filigree medallions.
These lead to three-dimensional filigree "fans" on each side that overlap two marquise-cut chartreuse rhinestones and a round-cut rootbeer rhinestones.
It's the medallion at the center of the necklace that really catches the eye.
It's characterized by a combination of the same gold-tone filigree medallion and fan shapes higher-up on the necklace.
These are embellished with a giant rootbeer pear shaped rhinestone and three of the same color in marquise cuts. Marquise and round-cut chartreuse rhinestones are the perfect color-complement.
The necklace joins with a simple hook that can be attached anywhere on the chain; this makes the length easily adjustable.
A big rootbeer rhinestone at the end of the chain adds that little extra sparkle.
Each earring echoes the shape of the centerpiece beautifully only slightly smaller. Classic hinge-clips make them wonderfully comfortable to wear.
Only showing the slightest amount of wear, this stunning set remains in outstanding vintage condition.
This is one of those stand-alone pieces. Wear it with a simple ensemble and let it do all the talking!
