Smoky quartz color (sometimes referred to as black diamond) reigned supreme in the 1950s-1960s. Delizza & Elster championed the trend with its' oval side hinged clamper bracelet awash in oval, pear, and marquise art glass stones (all unfoiled and open backed). A pair of complementing chaton rhinestones accent. Stones adorn the front half of bracelet. Large pears and oval stones are fancy dog tooth prong set. Remaining stones are conventional prong set. Though unsigned, the squared metal work, stone collection and coordination, construction and overall presentation indicate D & E's work.
The oval bracelet has an inside circumference of approximately 6 1/2 inches -- about 2 1/4 inches across oval. DeLizza & Elster clamper bracelets are sized to fit small to medium wrists. The oval shape and side hinge facilitate a fabulous fit and feel -- no twist or turn. Front is about 3/4 inch wide tapering to 1/2 inch near hinge. Center oval stone and two large pears are 18 millimeters x 13 millimeters; marquises, 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters and chatons 4 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet is 34 grams.
