DeLizza and Elster Smokey Gray and Clear Glass Stones and Chatons Demi Set - Book Piece
I am pleased to be able to offer this lovely huge and chunky DeLizza and Elster vintage brooch and earrings demi-parure. There are clear and smoke chatons and large smokey gray oval faceted glass gems all prong set and mounted on shiny silver tone frames and findings.
The 2 3/4" x 2" brooch has five large faceted oval smokey gray glass gems, four smokey gray and clear chaton florettes, beautifully connected with eyelets creating a three dimensional look and further adorned with lines and circles of clear pastes. There are layers of stacked and curved beauty and the combination and design of all the beautiful stones has created an exquisite piece of jewelry. There is a rollover clasp that works smoothly and stays closed tight.
The 1 3/4" x 1" clip earrings are equally exquisite with the same design elements used as in the brooch. These earrings sit beautifully framing the ear lobes. The clips with holes in them snap tight and the chatons are connected using the signature figure eight puddling found in DeLizza and Elster jewelry. The silver tone plating of the cups holding the chatons that create the florette on each earring has worn off probably because the lady placing them on her ears had cosmetic chemicals on her hands or sprayed perfume or hairspray that made contact with the plating. The rest of the plating on the entire earrings are in like new condition. This flaw is nearly invisible when the earrings are clipped on the ear and this can be easily touched up or repaired if it is a bother. I have reduced the price of the set to reflect this.
This demi is hand made and prong set. It is in very good vintage condition (with the exception of the earring plating loss mentioned above) showing very little wear and is substantial weighing a total of 58 grams. This is verified De Lizza and Elster featured on Juliana Jewelry/The DeLizza and Elster Education Site Item #274.
The beauty of this brooch and earring demi cannot be fully captured in pictures. This set is worthy to be added to the finest De Lizza and Elster collection.
