Pell was introduced in 1941 as a family run company featuring rhinestone jewelry that was often pave set, rhodium plated and at times defined with splashes of colored stones, in this case sapphire blue marquises with the addition of blue baguettes in the brooch. Reminiscent of the belle epoch period at the turn of the century and revisited in the '40s and into the '50s, the set's classic design continues to be a favorite of collectors and aficionados. Pell sets are uncommon and examples in excellent vintage condition, rarely found.
The '40s-'50s vintage demi includes the brooch, at approximately 2 3/16 inches x 1 5/16 inches and the clip earrings, at about 1 3/16 inches x 13/16 inch. Largest brooch marquise is approximately 8 millimeters x 4 millimeters. Largest earrings marquises, about 6 millimeters x 2 millimeters. Weight of the set is approximately 30 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Rhinestones intact and sparkly. (Please consider that photos are close-ups and may magnify slight imperfections, commensurate with age.) Sapphire blue rhinestones retain color and brilliance. All rhodium plate intact, front and back. Pin back and earring clips strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Presents beautifully.
