Description: Crescent Moon Brooch and Earrings - These certainly look like Florenza but no marking. (In the time period since I originally wrote this description, these have been verified by an expert in Florenza jewelry as, indeed, having been produced by Dan Kasoff, Inc.) Brass colored setting with smokey topaz and clear aurora borealis rhinestones and small glass pearls. Brooch is quite large, 2 3/4" x 2 1/4", clip earrings are 1" in diameter. Excellent condition with some of the small pearls on the brooch being replacements. Much better looking in person than in the photo, and excellent with your brown colored clothing.

Description: Florenza Carnival Glass Tulip Bracelet - This piece is Florenza at it's best. Olive green and hyacinth, olive AB and hyacinth AB rhinestones accent the irridescent tulip shaped leaves. Goldtone setting, foldover clasp has an embossed floral pattern. 7 1/8" x 1" and in original, almost mint condition. Absolutely beautiful, and I cannot, at this writing, find another like it on the internet.

Description: Florenza Satin Glass/Rhinestone Earrings - Beautiful purple frosted navette cabochons are surrounded with light amethyst rhinestones in a goldtone snake-like setting. Clip backs, earrings are marked on the body of the earrings rather than the clip mechanisms. One or two of the lavender rhinestones is a little bit hazy as is typical of these pieces, but there is little of the glue "bleed thru" visible that normally besets these lovely pieces. Very good-excellent condition.

Description: Florenza Citrine/Green Specialty Stone Earrings - These earrings matching a really wonderful bracelet and necklace done by Florenza, probably in the 1950's or 1960's; large top stone is 12mm, which surmount an aqua-green flatback "S" shaped stone flanked by two lime green aurora borealis rhinestones, glass pearls and topaz rhinestones. The "S" shaped stones are not in good shape, one is not bad but the other is deteriorating on the flatback; glass pearls are worn. Otherwise in quite good shape, but I am offering them at a nominal price in case you have the "S" stones and can repair these or if you need the earrings for parts, as I highly doubt that the yellow/green stones can be purchased anywhere except on another piece.

Description: Florenza Trembler Bird Pin - Each wing of this piece is attached to a spring so that both wings move as the wearer moves, like the bird is going to flutter its wings and fly away. All original, done in darkened metal. Dark sapphire, light sapphire and capri blue rhinestones surround a jelly opal art glass stone. Excellent condition, 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".

Carved frosted glass florals are set with small purple rhinestones and surrounded by purple, lavender and colored aurora borealis stones, all in a heavily antiqued silvertone setting.

Description: Florenza Faux Lapis and Crescent Stone Earrings - Larger oval glass faux lapis piece is surrounded by rhinestones in light and dark sapphire blue, with ruby-colored glass crescent stones curving around purple rhinestones. All paste set in heavily antiqued silvertone. Clip findings, 1" x 3/4". Excellent condition, though have learned that the ruby crescents are not original but should be lapis blue to match the ovals.

Description: Florenza Cameo Brooch - Florenza apparently made a line of carved shell cameos (not plastic, real carved shell) and this is one of them. Right facing woman's profile is very modernistic looking; set in a domed goldtone frame that has what appears to be a crown motif at the top. About 2 1/8" x 1 1/2". Excellent condition.

Description: Florenza Glass Carnelian Cabochon Earrings - These are the match to a Florenza brooch we sold a while back. Center cabochon is surrounded by white faux pearls, clip mechanism, goldtone setting, about 1" in diameter with some depth to them. These were perfect until I dropped one and slightly chipped the edge of one cabochon - as you can see from the picture it is not very noticeable but I do want the buyer to know this, and the price reflects.

Description: Florenza Charm Necklace - Three strand nested necklace with each strand featuring a different "charm"; top charm is a small plastic cameo head accented with a purple rhinestone; middle charm is a faux turquoise flanked by small white glass pearls, top-bottom and side-side; bottom charm is an oval faux opal topped with a small round faux opal. Top and bottom chain seem to be the same design but bottom has larger links. Goldtone, shortest chain is about 18" and longest about 30". Very good condition, with wear to the high spots on the glass pearls.

Description: Florenza Topaz/Green Earrings - Wonderful clip earrings in excellent condition, featuring Colorado topaz thin navettes and Madiera topaz rounds, faux jade cabochon marquises and art glass leaves in irridescent lime green. Antiqued goldtone setting. 1" x 7/8". I also have the matching brooch for these earrings but it is missing the center art glass stone and I have been unable to find a replacement.

Description: Florenza Yellow-Green Aqua Earrings - Featuring the sought-after bi-colored dentelles in a topaz yellow and emerald green over an aqua S shaped stone, and accented with cream glass pearls, small topaz rhinestones and peridot aurora borealis rhinestones. Goldtone setting, everything original and in excellent shape, with a little "glue" showing on the underside of the S stones. I have tipped the earrings to photograph so you can see this, in person you will not notice this at all if not at a certain angle, and even then it won't be as noticeable as the picture. 1 3/8" x 3/4".

Description: Florenza Lipstick Caddy - While this is not jewelry per se, it is a bejeweled item! This vanity item is used to hold four lipsticks, done in goldtone, with creamy white glass pearls and lime green and fuchsia rhinestone accents. Heavy, substantial feel, this looks like it was hardly used; all I can see is a little plate darkening around a couple of the rings, and the goldtone has worn off the part of the feet that would touch where it sat. 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 1". Florenza made ring holders, pin cushions, match holders, ring holders and many other "household" items for bedroom, bathroom and even party use.
