Mesh sets were a bit of a departure for Weiss. They are seen far less frequently than many of the standard Weiss production pieces. The parure offered suggests that whether Weiss worked in rhinestones, enamel, beads, bakelite, mesh, or mixed materials, their commitment to quality was paramount.
There are reasons Weiss was among the top three or four firms that ruled the Costume Jewelry Kingdom. The mesh and rhinestone parure pictured is one of many.
Appreciating beauty of all ages. Cody's Vintage Jewelry.
