Description ~ from the House of DeLizza & Elster comes to you this blindingly brilliant brooch - designed as a leaf and done in layers, this piece is decorated w/a striking combination of crystal rhinestones in a variety of shapes and sizes - finished in a gold-toned setting, this piece dazzles!
Measurements ~ approximately 3.5" x 1.25" Dates ~ c1960
Markings ~ unmarked - please see pictures. DeLizza & Elster Jewelry was not marked unless it was made for another "designer", such as Weiss or Tara. D&E jewelry is identified via study and evaluation of several construction characteristics.
Know You are Buying Real D&E ~ the construction attributes that mark this set as made by D&E include: prong-set stones, correct pin assembly, pin assembly attached at an angle, and layers attached w/heavy solder
Condition ~ Excellent: pre-owned vintage ~ while there is a touch of clouding, mostly at the tips, on this piece, it is in otherwise fantastic shape w/little other evidence of age or use - it wears spectacularly! Otherwise, all materials are present, clear, and chip/flake free; the hardware is in good, working order.
