Glass cabochons in pink and aqua mimic the star sapphire effect via pressed molded faceted bottoms in this marvelous '50s vintage gold tone brooch and earring demi. Rhinestone and art glass marquises fan out in complementing shades of aqua and pink with the addition of peridot in the brooch. Some marquises are foiled and closed back, others unfoiled and open backed. All cabs and selected marquises are dog tooth pronged in high rise basket settings. Star sapphire effect in specialty stone cabs showcases wonderful burst of color while topside luster reflects. In tandem with rhinestones and art glass marquises -- a stupendous star studded event.
The brooch measures approximately 2 inches across with a 3/8 inch profile (slight dome). Matching clip earrings are about 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch. Glass cabs are approximately 12 millimeters; marquises, 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters. Weight of the brooch and earrings set is about 40 grams.
