1950's Sterling Necklace, Earrings SET: rhinestone

Measurements: Total WEIGHT including stones: 19.4 grams - Necklace LENGTH: 16" - central element: 3" x 1 1/4" - EARRINGS: 1" X 3/4" (greatest width)

While this set is clearly marked "sterling" (not 925 which dates the set before the 1973 hallmarking act) with the maker's mark of LG - I have been unable to identify the full name of the maker. The intricate filagree of the leaves would suggest that the set is either German or Italian, but that is just my own guess.

This design of costume jewelry was used for formal wear in the 1950's - 1960's - silver substituting for white gold and molded glass mimicking the "fruit salad" style emeralds used by Cartier.

In very fine, original condition without damage, breaks in the filagree, or replaced stones.

As always with my vintage jewelry, this set was photographed unpolished.
