The Dan Kasoff Company used the Florenza name from 1948-1981. It is noted for expert metal work, interesting stones and creative color choices / combinations. The set presented, circa 1950s-1960s, exemplifies all three signature looks. Select foliate gold tone metal components are silver tone topped for a dual tone presentation. Jet black marquise glass stones intersperse while smoky quartz and golden topaz chaton rhinestones accent throughout. Florenza completes the look with frosted molded (aka camphor)pear shaped glass cabochons with pressed foliate decorations. In silvery gray and topaz, the bi-color glass cabs complement the smoky quartz and topaz chatons rhinestones perfectly. From the dual tone metals to the coordinated stone treatments, the set exemplifies Florenza's commitment to quality design, materials and craftsmanship.
The demi includes the brooch, at approximately 2 1/4 inches x 1 5/8 inches at it's widest point with a 3/8 inch profile or height and the matching clip earrings, at about 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch. Camphor molded glass cabs (foiled and open backed) are 18 millimeters x 13 millimeters; black glass marquises, 9 millimeters x 5 millimeters and largest smoky quartz chaton rhinestones, 6 millimeters. Weight of the set is approximately 40 grams.
