A super spectacular aurora borealis rhinestone bib necklace and matching earrings set (circa 1960s) is presented in all it's glory. Large ab chatons display tones of midnight greens and blues while smaller aurora borealis glint in gold and violet. Alternate color shades are emitted as light and angles change. The aurora borealis palette is forever changing, making it a challenge to ascribe constant colors. We would say that in real life, the larger ab stones have an intense, steely blue / grey cast while the accent abs offer flashes of gold. We attempted to take photos with different backgrounds and lighting...however, replicating color was an issue. Please be aware of the color variances.
The gold tone bib necklace is designed in a modified scalloped Vee, tightly filled with large, multi pronged chatons, and smaller four pronged chaton rhinestones. Full and solid with flexibility for a fabulous fit and feel. Matching clip, button style earrings with complimenting stones complete the set.
The necklace is adjustable to about 15 inches with hook closure. Decorative center spans approximately 6 1/4 inches x 2 inches at it's widest point or drop. Earrings are about 1 inch across with a 3/8 inch profile. Rhinestones range in size from about 4 millimeters to 9 millimeters. Weight of the necklace and earrings set is approximately 68 grams.
