Description ~ from the House of DeLizza & Elster comes to you this wonderfully fashionable brooch - done in crystal clear rhinestones and accented w/both a large, golden leaf finding and a golden rope finding, and a florette, this piece is finished in gold tones and simply elegant!
Measurements ~ approximately 2.5" x 1.75"
Dates ~ c1960 (Ann Pitman's Guide dates this piece as c1962)
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 ~ while this is a known, and booked, D&E design, the construction attributes that mark this piece as made by D&E include: prong set stones, correct pin assembly, findings known to be used by D&E, riveted construction and attachment of a florette
Condition ~ Excellent: pre-owned vintage ~ while one of the rope stems appears to be slightly bent, this jewelry shows little other evidence of age or use and wears wonderfully! Otherwise, all materials are present, clear, and chip/flake free; the hardware is in good, working order.
