Sparkling aurora borealis rhinestone rosettes blossom above this magnificent '60s vintage demi by DeLizza & Elster. Gold tone bases are set with topaz colored rhinestones in the set with the addition of massive ab chatons in the brooch. The distinctive design is a favorite among D & E collectors showcasing the firm's special talent for creating the most expressive rhinestone treatments. They're all here -- the signature characteristics of the company's work -- rosettes, riveting, deep channels of cup set rhinestones, pin mechanism and earring clip construction, stone selections and arrangements and of course, the overall design and presentation. Beautifully done by DeLizza & Elster.
The set includes the brooch, at approximately 2 3/8 inches across with a generous 9/16 inch profile and the matching clip earrings, at approximately 1 1/8 inches across. Largest ab chatons in the brooch are about 11 millimeters; Topaz colored round brilliants in the set, approximately 9 millimeters. Weight of the brooch and earrings is about 68 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining color and ab finishes. Extremely brilliant with like new sparkle. Gold tone finish intact with some wear on earring reverses and pin shaft. Pin shaft has slight bend to it not affecting value or function. Earrings clips and pin mechanism strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The set is not signed, as was D & E's practice. It is guaranteed to be from this firm's inventory, dating to the 1960s.
