Some of the most strikingly beautiful work we've seen from Joseph Wiesner of New York. The set is uncharacteristically bold with a monumental, architectural setting comprised of a pitched zigzag of gorgeous lilac / lavender emerald and baguette cut rhinestones seamed with rows of violet chaton rhinestones. Wiesner's rhodium plated, fully articulated bracelet and clip earrings set, circa 1950s, could have easily graced a top model on any of the most prestigious runways. Spectacular size, colors, sparkle and dimension. Wiesner shines big time in it's tour de force demi.
The bracelet measures approximately 7 inches x an astounding 1 1/2 inches wide with a 7/16 inch pitch. Closure is secured via a push in box clasp and detachable safety chain. Each of the rigid links is connected with three, U formed elongated T bars for flexibility and fit -- wrapping round the wrist with violet spikes of sparkle. Clip earrings, at approximately 1 inch x 3/4 inch x 7/16 inch, mimic the design with a single V pitch row. Emerald cut stones are about 12 millimeters x 11 millimeters; baguettes, approximately 9 millimeters x 5 millimeters and chatons, about 3 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet and earrings set is a generous 136 grams.
