Roses glisten in silver enamel mist edged and accented in lustrous gold tone in this '70s vintage necklace, earrings and brooch set from Florenza. For a touch of color and sparkle, each piece sports a cranberry red aurora borealis rhinestone at blossom's center. The classic roses bloom yet once more -- forever fresh from Florenza.
The Dan Kasoff Company of New York ran Florenza from about 1948-1981, producing romantic, classically inspired jewelry. The company also manufactured jewelry for Weiss, Kramer, Capri, Coro and Carnegie, as well as trinkets for cosmetics giant Estee Lauder.
