Amethyst colored art glass marquises and purple chaton rhinestones glow as bridges of clear chaton rhinestones sparkle in this gorgeous '50s-'60s vintage necklace, brooch and earrings parure in light gold tone. Marquise (unfoiled and open backed) and large chaton rhinestones, both cuts dog tooth prong set, rise to the occasion with a boost from brilliant clear chaton rhinestone arcs. Detail, definition and dimension -- all superb. The crown jewels of costume.
The matched set includes the necklace, adjustable to about 15 inches with hook closure. Check out the thoughtful complimenting marquise and rhinestone arced tail end -- now that's a finishing touch! Necklace's decorative portion spans approximately 7 1/2 inches with a 1/2 inch profile or height. Rather than falling flat the necklace truly does "rise" to the occasion thanks to it's four sections of rigid, slightly domed marquise triplets. T-bar connectors articulate for premium fit and feel. The brooch measures in at about 2 inches across with a 1/2 inch dome. Clip, climber style earrings complete the set at approximately 1 1/8 inches x 5/8 inch. Marquise art glass stones in all pieces are about 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; large chatons, approximately 8 millimeters. Weight of the three piece parure is 68 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All amethyst colored art glass stones and rhinestones retain color and glow / sparkle. All "white" rhinestones uniformly clear and brilliant.
