Juliana demi, watermelon rhinestone necklace and earrings, blue and green demi parure.
This D & E set is extremely rare. Unsigned with all the Juliana hallmarks. It is flat out stunning. A complicated design that is put together with such skill, well, you just can’t look away.
A fabulous combination of watermelon stones, surrounded by navettes in greens and blues, some satin, some clear and to add even more interest and sparkle, little clear rounds stones peeking out on wires in a mini ‘over the top’ construction. Something Delizza and Elster are famous for.
The necklace is adjustable up to 17 & ½ inches, and the centerpiece is 1 & ½ inches north to south. The watermelon stones are 5/8” by ½” in closed back settings, the navettes are in open back settings. The earrings measure 1 & 1/8” by 7/8”.
They are in excellent condition, as pictures. There is one small repair on the back of the necklace, well done and not seen when worn (pictured). The stones are all in place and bright, the gold toned finish is still very good.
This is a brilliant set, a Juliana collectors dream, so unusual, so D & E.
