Leave it to D & E to color our world with the finest in rhinestone and art glass jewelry. Our '60s vintage set's top layer is awash in marine blue and aquamarine marquise and navette art glass stones while the bottom tier sports large ultra violet aurora borealis chaton rhinestones. The silver tone demi's huge circle pin and matching clip earrings' navettes and marquises are unfoiled and open back set -- one of the characteristics, in conjunction with others, indicating a D & E piece.
The brooch measures approximately 3 inches across with a 7/16 inch profile or height. Earrings are about 1 3/4 inches x 7/8 inch. Marquises are approximately 13 millimeters x 5 millimeters. Largest chatons are about 7 millimeters. Weight of the set is approximately 44 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All rhinestones retain ab finish and outstanding brilliance and color dispersion. All marquises and navettes free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Silver tone finish intact, fronts and backs. A small section of pin shaft has minor discoloration. All soldering secure. Pin back and earring clips secure Clean. No damage / no repairs.
As expected, the pieces are not signed. Stone treatments / arrangements, pin mechanism and earring clip construction, figure eight solder puddling on reverse of earrings, and overall design attribute this set to DeLizza & Elster.
