Sparking as though it was created yesterday, this wonderful '60s vintage Delizza & Elster rhinestone brooch proves that top quality high style always remains fresh and fashionable. In rich, creamy rhodium plate the brooch employs all the signature elements and techniques used in the creation of D & E's jewelry. At center is a raised rosette in aurora borealis rhinestones. Complementing satellite ab chatons are set at lower level amidst variously sized clear chatons, the four largest at a generous 10 millimeters each. From viewing the top side alone, the design, settings, stones and color choices clue you that it's Delizza & Elster's work. Flipping it over, seals the deal. Typical ball and catch pin assembly, riveting or swedging, prominent figure 8 puddling (soldering) and oft used reinforcement channels or veins, used top side for rhinestone augmentation, all indicate D & E.
The brooch measures approximately 2 inches across with a 5/8 inch maximum profile. Largest stones are each about 10 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is approximately 24 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All stones intact and extremely brilliant. No dark, cloudy, yellow or dead stones. All ab finishes intact. Rhodium plate intact. Pin back strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Pristine.
The brooch is not signed but has all the characteristics of Delizza & Elster's jewelry and is guaranteed as such.
