Introduced in the 1950s, Sarah Coventry's "Midnight Magic" is one of the company's most popular and impressive lines. It was considered one of Sarah's Prestige Pieces and continues to be a favorite with collectors and aficionados alike. The set's focal points are, of course, the large rectangular cut smoky quartz colored rhinestones. They have an almost window pane style layout -- four panes in each earring and eight in the brooch / pendant. When viewed from different angles and light sources, the panes glisten with silvery grey highlights -- much like billowing smoke. Rosy pink colored chaton rhinestones accent around each "window" with an added rhinestone set arch at the top of the pin / pendant. Metal is in a pewter-tone or gun metal finish, also referred to as anodized or antiqued silvertone. Metalwork frames are enhanced with braiding and beading.
A departure from most of Coventry's work, the Midnight Magic line was a top quality production and definitely earned the Prestige Piece status.
The demi includes the combination brooch / pendant, which includes a concealed loop at top for use as a pendant necklace. The piece measures about 2 1/2 inches x 1 3/4 inches with a 3/8 inch profile. (The stones alone in this combo are an impressive 1 1/2 inches x 1 inch.) Matching clip earrings complement, each 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch. Weight of the demi is approximately 60 grams.
