Everything about these earrings proclaims Delizza & Elster. Design, materials, construction and color combination all indicate they are '60s vintage D & E creations. A wonderful large , unfoiled and open back set oval art glass stone in topaz anchors with topaz color chatons arching over the top. Three large glass citrine rhinestones cradle. Please note that color described is my interpretation. It is subjective and may appear different to others. The earrings, in goldtone feature prominent figure 8 puddling on reverse and one hole punch clips. As with many Delizza & Elster jewelry, both foiled and unfoiled stones are used. To check out D & E's jewelry, peruse Katerina Musetti's "The Art of Juliana Jewelry". Along with other spectacular jewelry, you'll see variations of the earrings offered.
The ear clip pictured measure about 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch with a 1/4 inch profile. The oval art glass stones are each approximately 17 millimeters x 12 millimeters. Weight of the earring pair is about 17 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All rhinestones retain outstanding color retention and brilliance. Art glass ovals free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Earring clips strong and secure. No damage / no repairs.
Not signed, as is common, the earrings have all the features indicating Delizza & Elster's work. Check out the many photos I have included for your assessment.
When it comes to vintage fashion jewelry, D & E pulled out all the stops. Give it a go and take the road less traveled but much more scenic.
