Top of the line Goldette. Large, faceted, bezel set, clear glass teardrop crystal pendants dangle from heavily coiled golden settings in this sumptuous bib necklace and earrings demi, circa 1960s. Ben Gartner's Circle Jewelry Products of New York City and Providence, circa 1958-1977, specialized in exuberant metal work jewelry. Examples tend to be large and bold, often with Victorian revival / Oriental themes. The set presented from Goldette's premium line, showcases the company's expertise incorporating art glass stones into it's distinctive designs. The necklace features fine rope like strands coiling their way around graduated pear shaped art glass dangles. Alternating settings and bilateral chain links remain open, sans stones. Matching tension control screw / clip earrings consist of a coiled top and single glass pendant drop. In this shop's opinion, some of Goldette's best work. As fun and fashionable as when created some 50 years ago.
