By Gale and Gale Creations appear to be the same company in operation from about 1955 to perhaps the '70s. Little is know about this firm other than it used very high quality stones and workmanship. Surviving inventory is limited and examples, particularly three piece sets, are rare.
It is our pleasure to present this wonderful '50s-'60s vintage givre (sometimes called Sabrina) art glass stone and rhinestone parure By Gale in pristine vintage condition. Fancy dog tooth prong set givre chatons in pastel blue, green and pink are unfoiled and oped backed in silver tone pie crust settings, allowing light to pass through for premium brilliance and color. Givre specialty stones have the appearance of fine, clear crystal stones that are infused with stripes or ribbons of color. Rather than flat, solid colors, the ribbons have wonderful, marble like "waves" of shades. Extremely distinctive and dramatic. The necklace and earrings in this parure are accented with brilliant clear chaton rhinestones. The double row bracelet solely emphasizes the givre stones.
The necklace is adjustable to about 15 inches with rhinestone embellished hook closure. Decorative center spans approximately 6 1/4 inches x 1/2 inch wide. The double row bracelet is about 7 inches x 1 inch with fold over clasp. Clip earrings complete the set at about 1 inch across with a 1/2 inch dome or profile. Givre stones in all pieces are approximately 11 millimeters; largest chaton rhinestone in earrings, about 9 millimeters and chaton rhinestones in bilateral necklace chains, about 4 millimeters. Weight of the three piece parure is approximately 86 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components appear original and are intact. All givre stones free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Premium infused "cracked ice" color and brilliance. All rhinestone intact and uniformly clear and brilliant. No dark, grey, yellow, dull or dead stones. All stones securely pronged. All soldering and connections secure. All silver tone finish intact, fronts and backs. Necklace closure, bracelet fold over clasp and earring clips strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs / no issues. Pristine vintage.
All pieces are signed. The necklace on reverse of givre stone closest to hook end within an oval cartouche: "BY gale" with a crown over "gale". The bracelet on reverse near clasp end within an oval cartouche: "BY gale" with crown over "gale". Each original earring clip within an oval cartouche: "BY gale" with crown over "gale". On all pieces the "BY" is in block caps while "gale" is in distinctive script. The set dates circa 1950s-1960s.
