This DeRosa shimmering red Metallic Enamel bracelet is absolutely amazing.

It is 7 1/2" long by 1 3/16" wide by 1/4" tall.

I can say with certainty that this is indeed a rare find. It is not signed. It is circa 1940.

Each full bloom rose has centers of white pave rhinestones on top.

There is no enamel loss, no missing rhinestones, and no dead rhinestones. It is just an incredibly fabulous bracelet.

Anything made by DeRosa is striking in design with high quality enamel work. The floral pieces are especially good, particularly those in the retro style of Hollywood precious jeweler Paul Flato.

This Original by Robert rhinestone and pearl encrusted bar pin is 3 1/4" long by 7/8" wide.

Robert, Or Original By Robert, Is The Mark Used By The Fashioncraft Jewelry Company.

The Firm Was Founded In New York City By Robert Levy, David Jaffe, And Irving Landsman.

Landsman Left In 1951, And The Company Changed Its Name To Robert Originals, Inc. Around 1960.

Most Of The Designs Created By This Company Have Natural And Floral Motifs Employing Faux Pearls, Colored Glass, Crystal Beads, And Quality Imported Rhinestones Set On Gilded Filigree Open Wire And Openwork Mountings.

The 1940's Advertisements Claim That The Jewelry Was Entirely Hand Crafted And So Finely Detailed That Expert Jewelers Would Often Mistake Them For Genuine Precious Jewels.

Robert Jewelry Was Never Cheap; In The Mid-1940's, A Pin And Earrings Set Would Usually Cost Around $50.00.

The Firm Also Supplied Jewelry To The Motion Picture Industry, Including The Jewelry For The 1952 Oscar Nominated Elia Kazan Movie, "Viva Zapata", Featuring Marlon Brando And Jean Peters.

Levy Retired In 1975.

Levy Is Usually Known For His Work In Filigree, Which Often Results In His Pieces Being Mistaken For Miriam Haskell Jewelry. However, In The 1950's And 60's He Created A Line Of Enameled Jewelry In Whimsical Fruits And Flowers Which Has Become The Epitome Of That Era.
