This is a dazzling, vintage Delizza and Elster (AKA Juliana, D & E) blue rhinestone pin with a bale for wear as a pendant, as well as the matching earrings to the set. You will love the variety of shades of blue and shapes of the stones. A level below the main design sits baby blue rhinestones with three larger chatons at the very bottom. Worn as a pin, it finishes off your professional outfit; worn as a pendant, it is be perfect for those special occasions. The clip earrings have a deep blue, large chitin in the center, with small chitin accent curing up the side and two marquise stones extending out from the top. Included is the sterling silver (marked .925 Italy) chain that was shown in the photos. With the bale, you can chose your own type and length of chain/necklace. This is shown in "Juliana Jewelry The Last Generation" by Knutson and Wacker, page 298 (green rhinestone version).
Measurements: The pin is approximately 2.25 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide. Each clip earring is 1.25 inches tall by .75 inches wide.
Condition: The pin is in excellent vintage condition! Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: Delizza and Elster pieces came with paper hang-tags (long gone) and so are identified by key characteristics or, like this one, as a verified book piece.
This set is a virtual tutorial in D & E characteristics including: 4 prong set stones, the use of both open and closed settings, the figure 8 puddling connecting some rhinestone settings, the directly attached pin back, and the bale to convert use to a pendant. Even the somewhat sloppy use of solder showing in places on the brooch is characteristic of D & E!
