Electric blue has been the color trend in recent years. It is a striking,dynamic and vivid. This demi parure by Grosse uses electric blue to accent a necklace and earrings that are gold tone with diamante crystals or rhinestones. Grosse, also known as Henkel and Grosse, created luxury costume jewelry since 1907 and Lanvin and Schiaparelli were among their clients. They were the sole creators of Dior jewelry during the mid century and afterwards created jewelry under their own trademark. This demi parure skillfully creates the appearance of the "real thing." The necklace has a middle accent piece that measures 3" across. It is a "V" shape. There are three rows of small rhinestones on each side of the center ornamentation. These crystals shine brightly and are set in the diamante fashion. With the exception of two rhinestones which have turned dull, the rest sparkle and glisten. There are so many stones that this it is barely noticeable. The middle decoration consists of a scrolled or curve piece that has multi faceted emerald cut stones over a gold tone bezel set large multi faceted electric blue glass stone in a diamond shape. It is slick and slender and the contract against the clear rhinestones is dramatic. The middle section seems to be a little raised giving the necklace dimension. The bright gold tone serpentine chain is flat and smooth. The necklace closes with a flip safety clasp and is engraved with "GROSSE." The earrings are half moon shape and are of the clip on type. They also are set with tiny rhinestones that are in the diamante fashion. One rhinestone on one earring has darkened. Otherwise the crystals shine brightly. There is a similar diamond shaped electric blue glass stone in the middle of the rhinestones. Grosse is engraved on the clip mechanism on both earrings. The original rubber tabs remain on the earrings. With the exception of the few darkened stones, this set is in wonderful condition. The necklace measures 15" from end to end and the earrings are 1"h x 5/8"w. This is a beautiful set that would compliment any electric blue or lapis lazuli colored outfit. However, I can see it with many other colors such as white and red. A sophisticated and smart set that is priced to sell! Condition: Excellent- VINTAGE Condition
