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.

Description: Rimmed top & bottom in black, hand enameled. Quite innovative in design. This bracelet features turquoise, coral, emerald and cranberry highlights framed by a continuous cream swirl against a cream background. Original safety chain. Circa. 1955-1970.

In 1973, and again in 1974, the company showed full color ads of their "Artist’s Series". These have no rhinestones, but feature geometric and abstract designs in enamel. According to Harrice Miller’s books (especially her second edition) some of the artists providing inspiration were: Braque, Miro, Chargill, Calder, Vesarely, Picasso and Pucci.

Sometimes this jewelry was made in sets including bracelets, pendants, pins, earrings, and rings. The color combinations were blue, turquoise, and green, also tan, orange, and brown, plus other variations. Some are solid brick red with black lines; others look as if the painted design was an oriental word. The enamel completely covered the metal. One of the ads states that it was baked 27 times!

Dimensions bracelet: Inner Circumference 2 1/8" x 2 1/16th"

The fleur de lis (flower of the lily) is a heraldic symbol of French royalty. It is still used in flags and most often in jewelry. It has a prestigious history as a symbol of kings, worn by Crusaders into battle, and an emblem of the flag of St. Joan of Arc. Today it is the symbol of the city of New Orleans and is proudly embraced in the rebuilding efforts.

This fleur de lis has an enamel center over brass and is used separately as a pin or as a watch holder. It is 1 1/4" x 1" .

Francois - Coro tried to give their costume jewelry a "French" touch and Francois was chosen as the name for their higher end jewelry. The line was introduced in 1933. But the line only lasted until 1944 when it was replaced by Vendome as Coro's Couturier division.

Francois was one of the new designers at Coro in 1938.

FRANÇOIS is a seldom seen Coro mark. François is a line of Coro jewelry that began in 1938 and continued until at least 1961, possibly later. Although collectors often think of Vendome as Coro's couturier line, François was one Coro's earliest couturier lines along with Coro Craft. François jewels were sold only in the jewelry cases of the finest stores. This information is from Coro Jewelry: a Collector's Guide by Marcia "Sparkles" Brown.

This pin is 5 1/8" long x 3/4 " at it's widest point. The earrings 1 1/4" long by 5/8" wide.
