1920s Art Deco 4-Pc Rhinestone Parure Set
This is an amazing Art Deco period rhinestone parure consisting of the necklace, screw on Girandole design earrings, and bracelet.
It is rhinestones set in a pot metal base and is circa 1920's thru 1930's. Pot metal was often used in making jewelry during this era due to the shortage of other materials.
The design work in this set is amazing with geometric designs set with round rhinestones covering the entire piece almost like a Pave setting, but it is not a Pave' setting. There are also baguettes adorning this set in all center areas giving it an even more geometric art deco elegant look! Both the necklace and earrings have triangle danglers with baguettes and round rhinestones in each triangle. The necklace has a "J" hook clasp and the earrings are screw on with curvy half moons against the geometric designs which is a very Art Deco style back in the day. I'm not sure what the name for the bracelet clasp is called but it's the kind where you slip the one end inside the other and it snaps shut. There are a few rhinestones missing here and there on this set which would be easilly replaced due to the way the setting is in this magnificant parure. These missing stones do not detract in any way and are not even noticable due to the glare all the other stones give off. I was only able to find the missing stones thru my loupe inspection. None of the larger stones are missing, this is only the small ones and are as follows: One earring is missing two stones, the other earring is missing one stone, the bracelet is missing a total of 11 stones which I had to find with my loupe, otherwise I could not see this at all since these are the small stones and there are so many of them giving off such a sparkly glare, the Necklace is not missing any stones at all. Any missing stones can easily be replaced as the settings are solid inside but as I said, this does not detract in any way from it's sparkly beauty and doesn't even show due to all of the sparkles and rays all around.
The necklace measures 18.25" long from end to end, the bracelet measures a little over 7.25" long including the clasp and without the clasp it measures 7" long, the earrings measure 2.5" long.
This set is absolutely decadent and very elegant and would make a beautiful accessory for any black tie affair as well as a beauty of a set to wear with a wedding dress, it's both something old and something new since it will be new to you! Buy it for yourself, lend it to the bride and all she'll need now is something blue!
