About my DeLizza & Elster Jewelry - I am an avid student and collector of D&E Jewelry. I am also a member of several online groups that seek to study and identify both D&E jewelry and costume jewelry in general. When in doubt, I consulted Mr. DeLizza through email, and retain all those emails for reference.
Please see my blog ~ http://julianajewelry.wordpress.com/ ~ which contains more information on D&E jewelry and a showcase of jewels (in development).
