This is gorgeous Delizza and Elster green rhinestone brooch in a gold tone leaf shape. The shade of green has a slight olive cast to it. There are two levels of marquise and chaton stones with two, large watermelon margarita stone drawing the eye to the center. Very striking and gorgeous! This book piece can be found on page 149 of "The Art of Juliana Jewelry" by Katerina Musetti.
Measurements: The brooch is a large, 3.375 inches tall and 1.625 inches wide with a diagonal rolling pin clasp.
Condition: The set is in good condition overall - with some scuffing and flea bites to the rhinestone surfaces. On the left side, the third marquise pin up from the base has a chipped end - you can see it if you look closely, but since the bottom of the entire stone is still there, the pin retains its beauty. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: As is the case with all Delizza and Elster jewelry, the pieces have no markings; the paper hang tags that were attached at one time are long gone. The design is clearly D & E, and is a verified book piece, shown with the use of the rivoli and marquise stones, the "bling" factor, and the four prong settings. The back of the brooch has the "figure 8" pudding between some sets of rhinestones, as well as the attached pin back and the open back settings for some stones. No doubt about it pedigree.
