This gorgeous vintage brooch and earrings set looks like the very essence of spring! Large cabochons of clouded robin's-egg blue are the centers of these lovely pieces. On the brooch, the blue cab is framed by marquise rhinestones in pale green, blue and lavender, accented by small er rhinestones in deep blue-green and by goldtone filigree beads. The finishing touch is a waterfall of sleek goldtone foxtail chain. On the matching earrings, a surround of blue-green rhinestones terminates in a filigree bead on the outside of the ear, a sweep of foxtail and a spray of pastel marquises. The brooch measures 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 inches and the earrings are 1-1/8 x 1-3/4 inch.
Condition is very good considering its age. One of the pale green stones - on the left, above the pin hinge - has lost some foiling, and the finish around the pin hinge on the back has dulled. (We think something was spilled there.) It's still a magnificent set, perfect for a spring wedding or any time you really want to make a statement.
