When you look at the photos you can see what I mean by both "elegant" and "WOW". Each link of the necklace is a sinuous swirl highlighted with small white rhinestones. The hidden joins allow the necklace to be almost silky soft to wear.
The matching earrings are a bit larger than the links of the necklace, but still have the same sparkling curves.

The patent for this particular face mask was issued to the owner of Elzac, Elliot Handler, in 1943.
The brooch is in very good condition - no chips or cracks to the lucite "bonnet," and the copper with original age patina. The mark seen to the left of the copper mask is a bit of tape residue which I neglected to remove. I guarantee that the brooch will arrive in perfect condition - minus the tape residue.
