D & E created this wonderful set in the 1960s featuring finely textured golden leaves, shaped gooseneck chain stems / branches, aurora borealis rhinestone rosettes and clear marquise and navette art glass flourishes. Construction is signature DeLizza & Elster work, including riveting, pin and earring mechanisms, figure 8 solder puddling in earrings, and rosette details in the set. Stone selections and arrangements, including unfoiled and open backed marquises and navettes, as well as liberal use of aurora borealis rhinestone accents -- also characteristic D & E. Similar designs, materials and presentations can be seen in various reference / research books on D & E jewelry.
The set includes the brooch, at approximately 2 5/8 inches x 1 3/4 inches with a maximum profile or height of 1/2 inch and the clip earrings, at an impressive 1 3/4 inches x 1 1/ 4 inches. Marquises and navettes are about 15 millimeters; largest chatons, approximately 6 millimeters. Weight of the brooch and earring set is about 42 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All component original and intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant, retaining ab finish where applicable (rosette stems stones are clear rhinestones.) All soldering and shaped gooseneck chains secure. Pin mechanism and earring clips strong and secure. Light gold tone finish intact, front and backs. Some wear to gold tone finish on pin shaft. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
As expected, the set is not signed. It is the work of Delizza & Elster and dates to the 1960s.
It is what it is. We guarantee it. D & E or it's free. Keeping your confidence. At Cody's.
