Keep your cool with this spectacular '40s-'50s vintage floral blossom necklace, brooch and earrings set with blue ice marquises and brilliant clear chatons. Plated in rich rhodium, the link necklace is reminiscent of many Bogoff pieces, each of the strand links cup set with a chaton rhinestone. Centerpiece span consists of five stations of flower blossoms, the largest at center. Blossom connector links are set with ice blue marquise rhinestones, while center of each blossom is set with a clear chaton. The brooch sprouts three blossoms, the largest at center. Stems are wire wrapped. The brooch, as well as the matching button style clip earrings follow the design scheme with complementing stones and color.
The parure includes the necklace at a fixed approximate 18 inches with rhinestone set foldover clasp; (decorative center spans about 5 1/4 inches and 1 3/8 inches at it's widest point.) the brooch, at approximately 3 3/8 inches x 2 inches at it's widest and the clip earrings at about 7/8 inch across. Weight of the parure is a substantial approximate 85 grams.
Condition of the parure is excellent vintage. All stones intact and brilliant. Ice blue rhinestone retain clean, crisp color. Clear stones remain "white" and sparkly. All rhodium plate intact. Necklace foldover clasp, pin back, and earring clips strong and secure. Please keep in mind that this set is vintage and it will not appear brand new.
The set is not signed except for a utility patent number on each earring clip that corresponds to the years 1934 or 35. Of course, these utility patents can only be used as a starting point. The set could not have been made earlier than these dates but the patent numbers were often stamped on the jewelry for many years. Due to the design, construction, materials, colors, and clip style I would date this parure to around 1940s to early 1950s. It is very similar to many Bogoff pieces made during this time, but again, it is not signed.
