A classic Deco set, circa 1925, with 17 brilliant clear spheres of undrilled genuine rock crystal wrapped in thin silver wires, with tiny silver disks on either side of each sphere, connecting to
jump rings. The carved crystal stones are each 13 millimeters in diameter. The screwback earrings have prong set faceted rock crystal stones at the top posts. The metal is not marked but
tests positive for at least 800 silver. The crystal spheres glow and refract and reflect in the most fabulous way.
A classic collectible Art Deco set, and currently perfectly of the
moment as well. The fashion world is in the midst of a major Art Deco revival, with top houses such as Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and Gucci showing jewelry and accessories with a glamorous graphic moderne edge.
The necklace is 15 3/4 inches long and 5/8 inch wide. The earrings are 1 1/2 inches long and 5/8 inch wide. Excellent condition. No damage to the crystal stones. Photos enlarged to show detail.
