Way past pastels. Hollycraft's rendition in red pushes the envelope. Large, luscious ruby red cabochons and rhinestones gleam and glow in this '60s vintage combination brooch / pendant necklace and earrings demi. In heavy gold tone baroque style settings, the cabs are multiple tab pronged while rhinestones are deep cup set. The brooch has a concealed hook for use as a pendant necklace and comes complete with a triple link gold tone chain. (The pendant's hook fits through the triple linkage to secure.) Earrings are clip and match the pendant / brooch perfectly.
The set includes the brooch, at approximately 2 5/8 inches x 2 1/8 inches with a 5/8 inch profile, the triple length chain, at about 24 inches long with a spring ring closure, and the earrings, at approximately 1 1/4 inches x 1 1/8 inches. The cabs are about 17 millimeters x 12 millimeters and the largest chatons are about 5 millimeters. Weight of the demi is an incredible approximate 144 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. The reds in this set are outstanding. Cabochons have premium luster and glow. All rhinestones retain color and brilliance. No off color, cloudy or dead stones. No chips, nicks, cracks, or breaks to any stones. An absolutely arresting presentation of red carpet reds. Gold tone finish intact, fronts and backs. All soldering secure. Pin back, pendant hook, clip earrings and necklace clasp strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Near pristine vintage.
The brooch / pendant is signed on reverse within a rectangular cartouche: "HOLLYCRAFT" no copyright symbol. Each earring body is signed on reverse within a rectangular cartouche: "HOLLYCRAFT" no copyright symbol. Style, stones, construction and signature date this set to circa 1965.
Resplendent in red. Hollycraft's alter ego. One of many personalities. At Cody's.
