The quintessential Juliana crystal bead dangle bracelet. A trademark of DeLizza & Elster, this much researched and referenced piece is seen in numerous vintage costume jewelry books. It's five oval link construction is a signature of the firm, even though oft misplaced paper tags were the jewelry's only printed (signed) identification. Telltale settings, stones, connectors, end bars, and fold over clasps also distinguish these phenomenal D & E jewels, circa 1960s.

The mid century five link bracelet presented consists of five sections of triple marquise art glass clusters (unfoiled and open backed) A pair of smaller clear chaton rhinestones accents each cluster. Atop each triplet, three aurora borealis crystal glass beads dangle. Six striped connector bars attach links, each crowed with a spectacular basket set high beam headlight rhinestone. Arrow fold over clasp and detachable safety chain secure.

The bracelet is approximately 7 inches x 1 inch at it's widest point with a maximum 1/2 inch profile or height. Marquise glass stones are about 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; large rhinestones, 11 millimeters; smaller rhinestones, 5 millimeters and ab faceted glass beads, 8 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet is a generous 56.8 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All glass beads intact, retaining ab finish. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks to beads, rhinestones or art glass stones. All rhinestones uniformly clear and brilliant. No dark, cloudy or dead stones. Unfoiled (see through) marquises retain uniform glow. No dents or improper bends to metal components. All soldering, connections and links strong and secure. Bracelet links maintain proper alignment and shape. Fold over clasp and safety chain secure. Gold tone finish intact with some minor finish wear to reverse only. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Typically the bracelet is not signed or it's paper tag has gone missing. Unquestionably the work of DeLizza & Elster. Circa 1960s.

The golden age of rhinestones. When bigger was better and brilliance was best. Show and tell. At Cody's.
