ORA has been creating high quality jewelry since 1921. Some references indicate they produced jewelry for such industry legends as Eisenberg. The company's work for fraternal organizations such as the Shriners, Masons and Lions is well documented. Although ORA was conceived in the early '20s it did not begin marking it's jewelry until the late '40s. The firm continues to operate, using many of the same exacting procedures and techniques as employed in it's vintage jewelry.
The rhodium plate set presented, circa 1950s-1960s features a large triangular bypass brooch, each of it's three overlapping sides channeled with three rows of sparking chaton rhinestones. Rows' ends are gently curved, incorporating a softer side to the angular shape. Matching clip earrings mimic the brooch, albeit with two rows of rhinestones channeled on each side bar.
The brooch measures a generous approximate 2 1/4 inches across with a 1/4 inch profile or height. Chaton rhinestones in brooch are about 2.5 millimeters. Earrings are approximately 1 1/8 inches across. Weight of the brooch and earrings set is 30 grams.
