Autumnal colors flourish in this marvelous '50s-'60s vintage gold tone rhinestone crest brooch and earrings set with applied swirls of clear "ribbon" accent stones. The brooch features large marquises and chatons in gorgeous shades of forest green, citrine, hyacinth and topaz swept up in a crest or horseshoe shape up set with flourishes or golden ribbons set with clear chaton rhinestones. Button style clip earrings in complimenting colors complete the demi.
The brooch measures about 2 1/4 inches x 2 inches with a 3/8 inch profile. Earrings are approximately 1 1/16 inches x 1 inch. Largest topaz colored stones are about 11 millimeters; large green marquises, about 15 millimeters. Weight of the brooch and earrings set is approximately 38 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All colored stones maintain rich, saturated color and sparkle. Ribbon stones all uniformly clear and brilliant. All gold tone finish intact, fronts and backs. Pin mechanism and earring clips strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Although Weiss and Eisenberg were noted for their usage of the ribbon stone style, the comparable quality set presented is unsigned. Design, materials, construction and overall presentation suggest a 1950s-1960s vintage.
The crest of perfection. Colossal colors. Sensational style. Vintage advantage. All at Cody's.
