Light your fire with this smokin' bead bib and bracelet set from DeLizza & Elster, known famously for it's Juliana line. Presented is a spectacular '50s-'60s vintage bib beginning with a row of smoky quartz colored marquise rhinestones underlined with a row of chaton ab rhinestones and an additional row of smoky quartz chaton rhinestones. Each of the 27 row rhinestones dangles with a pair of smoky quartz colored glass beads and a larger aurora borealis crystal bead. The drama unfolds dripping with eleven rows of graduated ab beads, each culminating in a trio of smoky quartz glass beads. Décolletage delight, compliments of DeLizza & Elster. To sweeten the deal we're including the matching bracelet, laden with the same three bead dangle configuration at the top of the necklace -- a pair of smoky quartz glass beads centered with an aurora borealis crystal bead. Each of the five oval links dangles with four sets of beads. The bases and connectors are set with large smoky quartz rhinestones and smaller clear chaton rhinestones. Absolutely astonishing from the bib and bracelet maestros at D & E.
The necklace is adjustable to approximately 16 1 /2 inches with hook closure. Decorative center spans about 8 inches. Longest center section measures approximately 3 1/2 inches from top to bottom. The bracelet is 7 inches x 1 3/16 inches wide with arrow designed fold over clasp and detachable safety chain. Beads range from 5 millimeters to 10 millimeters (necklace and/or bracelet). Largest bracelet smoky quartz chaton rhinestones are 11 millimeters. Necklace smoky quartz rhinestone marquises are 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters. Weight of the necklace and bracelet set is a whopping 206 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All bead dangles complete and correct. We have noticed no chips, cracks or breaks to beads. All graduated necklace dangles correct and secure. All rhinestones intact, retaining sparkle. All connections secure. Silver tone finish intact, fronts and backs. Minimal finish wear on reverse of necklace only. Necklace closure, bracelet clasp and safety chain strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repair. Excellent vintage.
The set, as expected, is not signed. The materials and construction of both pieces are signature DeLizza & Elster work. Examine them closely for yourself -- the proof is evident, front and back. Circa 1950s-1960s.
