Description: DeLizza and Elster Colorado Topaz RS and Rootbeer Bead Brooch and Earrings Set - A well known D&E design, this uses a background of prong set CT rhinestones that graduate up to almost a 1/2" in diameter, over which are numerous dark brown crystal beads that have a half coat of aurora borealis, giving these a subtle, rich shimmer. Earrings use the same components. Brooch is 3 1/4" x 1" at widest point, earrings are about 1" in diameter. Do-nut hole clip findings, figure 8's, riveting, all the D&E earmarks. Great condition.

Description: Ruby and Clear Rhinestone Pin Pendant - A pretty and versatile piece, just right for Christmas or any time you wear red. Center is a pave half ball, surrounded by a row of clear ovals, with tiny rounds in between. Outer row of larger, unfoiled ruby ovals alternates with small clears on the inside and larger clears on the outside. The ruby glass stones are all prong set, as are the clears along the edge. About 1 3/4" in diameter, with domed center being about 1/2" deep. Pendant ring is visible at the top of the backside photo. Silvertone, excellent condition with just a little greying of the clears around the edge of the piece.

Description: Clear Rhinestone Bracelet with Cut-Outs - Want people to think you are wearing fine jewelry? This beautiful link bracelet is designer quality and looks like the real thing. Set with tiny 8pp clear rhinestones, this is comprised of 6 full links and two half links (at the clasp ends), all connected by tiny pave set bars. Each link has a cut out pattern that emphasizes a stylized leaf pattern; silvertone, rhodium plating, push in clasp and safety chain. 6 1/2" x 1/4". Beautiful condition, I have replaced one missing clear but you'll never be able to tell where it is.

Description: Multi Strand Necklace with Bi-Colored Drops - This goldtone necklace features two different styles of chain and two different types of drops. The larger disks are clear? or pale yellow with topaz colored clouds, while the briolette type drops are mainly topaz with some lighter yellow sections on the larger drops. Very showy and attractive. Push-in clasp is embossed in a paisley type design, nested type design goes from 14" to 22" including clasp. Nice either over clothing or against bare skin. Excellent condition.

Description: Long Aqua/Opaque Pink/Glass Pearl Necklace - This will remain a mystery but my hunch is that this is unsigned Haskell. This came to me with no clasp (endless strand), though there was a point at which the colors repeated instead of alternating, leading me to assume the clasp had been removed (and I have replaced with a thumbless spring ring clasp.) The original pearls were all 11mm baroque pearls in a dark cream, unfortunately all the pearlesence had fallen off, so it was my task to replace all of them, which I had to do with a regular glass pearl rather than baroques as they are not to be found in that size/color. Each station uses a brass "gothic" endcap that is set will clear rhinestones, certainly not the average endcap. Approximately 30" long and in excellent restored condition. Gorgeous colors, nice quality, this should last for many years to come.

Description: Unsigned Eisenberg Original With Unfoiled Amber Colored Stones - This huge retro design is either a "back in the day" reproduction or an unsigned Eisenberg, as I have had this same piece with a legitimate signature. 4" x 2 1/4", this uses oval, round and cushion rectangular cabochons, as well as two "gumdrop" cabs, along with an unfoiled topaz colored dentelle and a few clears dotting the side. The large stones are all heavy prong set; only the 4 clears that spring the perimeter are paste set. Much of the original goldtone plating has been worn away and the clears have darkened, otherwise this is in excellent shape with only a few minute scratches to the cabochons. Fur clip mechanism works very well; there is even the circle for the stonesetters mark but it is not filled in. If this were signed it would command a substantially higher price. This even uses the two hole fur clip mechanism that F&K were known to use on Eisenberg pieces.

Description: Purple Moonstone Purple and Lavender RS Wide Bracelet - Impressive piece with oval glass moonstones and octagonal purple rhinestones alternating down the center of two outer rows of round moonstone and lavender rhinestones. Rhinestone set push-in clasp, safety chain. 6 3/4" x 1 1/8". Excellent condition.

Description: DeLizza and Elster Smokey Topaz/Topaz AB Earrings - Top quality D&E with unfoiled center rounds and navettes, everything prong set. Do-nut hole style clip findings, goldtone, excellent condition. 1 1/4" x 1".

Item: UE1-678

Price: $37.50 US

Description: Savvy? (Swarovski brand) Very Long Necklace with Tiffany Balls - This is unsigned but the quality indicates that this was Swarovski and closely matches a pair of Swarovski earrings on the signed section of this site. Goldtone chain with Tiffany ball stations - Tiffany balls are all pave rhinestone set metal beads where little if any metal shows. This is claspless which is why there is no makers mark. I have doubled this for photographic purposes. This measures about 44" and is symmetrical in the ball placement. Excellent condition. Give 'em the old ball and chain and look great doing it!

Description: Unsigned Miriam Haskell Dress Clip with Aqua Beads, Black Enamel & RS - One of the best known of the unsigned designs, this is shown in Gordon & Pamfiloff book on pgs. 43 and 157, and listed as a WWII era piece, valued at $250-300. Beads are not quite as intense a turquoise as what my monitor indicates. All rhinestones are original and appear to be present, some have yellowed with time. Two of the 5 leaves show mild enamel loss, and stringing looks to be part original, part repair. Backs of potmetal leaves show age darkening. About 2" x 2". One repair string is wrapped around a bead in the back but does not affect the appearance of the piece.

Item: UD1-659

Price: $165.00 US

Description: Unsigned Early Haskell Beaded Dress Clip - Pretty brown mottled beads are sewn onto dress clip and anchored with clear silver-lined seed beads. Back of clip is marked "HETL Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.". Undoubtedly one of a pair as this measures 1 1/4" x 1". Original sewing appears to be in good shape; excellent condition. These HETL clips have been confirmed as being findings that Haskell used.

Item: UD1-337

Description: Green Enamel and Rhinestone Floral Brooch - This could be considered a trembler brooch, I believe, as the blue baguette "stamens" are on a spring, however the spring is tight enough that there isn't much trembling going on.  Clear rhinestones outline the three dimensional flower bud that is beautifully enameled in 1930's-1940's style.  Over 3 1/2" x 1 3/4".  Excellent with the greens that are currently popular in fashion, and probably unsigned Coro. 

Item: UP1-002

Price: $59.00 US

Description: Wisteria Brooch with Topaz Colored Rhinestones - Actually this fully three dimensional brooch uses unusual mottled marquises cabochons in shades of cream and beige with rich Madeira topaz rhinestones prong set throughout.  Almost 5" long and 1 3/4" across. Surely a designer piece but no place for a signature.  

Item: UP1-003

Price: $125.00 US

•••

Description: Trembler Brooch with Three Heads - Tremblers are a favorite of mine and are not easy to find, particularly when the tremblers work well and there are more than one. This lovely floral uses emerald green and clear rhinestones and a medium green enamel. All the stones are very bright and clear but the enamel has signs of wear. Silvertone setting is quite shiny, edges of floral heads have been antiqued, which makes them "pop". 2 1/2" x 2".

Item: UP1-477

Price: $99.50 US

Description: Aqua and Clear Rhinestone Pin Pendant with Beautiful Step-Cut Center Stone - Large unfoiled octagonal stone with step-cut faceting is surrounded by prong set aqua marquises and clear rounds. Silvertone setting, 2 1/2" x 2 1/4". Bail on back is large enough to accomodate a fairly good sized chain. Excellent condition, clear stones are not as dark as first picture indicates.

Item: UP1-837

Description: D&E Clamper Bracelet with Blue Sabrina Stones - Standard Clamper with dog-tooth set mirror-back oval light blue cabochons, dog-tooth set glass pearl cabs, openback Sabrina marquise cabs and light sapphire rhinestones. Silvertone setting, squared wire frame. One of the mirrored stones looks weird in the picture because it caught a picture in the mirror! Very nice in person, with minimal back spotting as is usual with these stones that you do not see in person except under very close scrutiny. Otherwise excellent condition.

Description: Glass Pearl and Faux Carnelian Bead Pin/Pendant and Earring Set - This rust color is good for fall and this year is no exception. Very good quality cream colored glass pearls are either attached with headpins or wired on; earrings use crimp-bead spacers on wired sections. Brooch has rhinestone set headpins scattered throughout. Quality pieces, excellent condition, clip earrings are 1" in diameter and brooch/pendant is 1 3/4" in diameter. The number and quality of components in this piece justifies the cost without even factoring in the labor.

Description: Unsigned Haskell Brooch with Aqua Beads - Beautifully done handwired brooch with clumps of turquoise colored beads and brass leaves. Standard clear plastic perforated back, 1930's rolling safety clasp. Aside from a tiny bit of the ubiquitous verdigris on a couple leaves this is in excellent condition. About 2 1/4" in diameter.

Item: UP1-758

Price: $59.50 US

Description: CAD Rhinestone Earrings in Pewtertone - Metallic dark silvertone rhinestones are paste set into a three dimensional stylized leaf design. Clip findings are of the type used by D&E but I think it much more likely these were made by Hollycraft. However, unsigned so we'll never know for certain. Dark grey setting, about 1 1/8" x 3/4". Excellent shape, and with a subtle sparkle similar to marcasite.

Item: UE1-806

Description: Cupcake Rivoli Brooch in Autumn Tones - Marguerita beads in golden topaz, Colorado topaz and olivine shades that seem to change depending on type of lighting, Each 3/4" bead is held in place by a clear rhinestone headpin, and are separated around the edges by clear aurora borealis bicone beads. Base is round but design is pentagonal. About 1 3/4" in diameter. A nice size for combining with other brooches in a grouping.

Item: UP1-161

Price: $34.50 US

•••

Description: Pink Glass Moonstone and Rhinestone Dragonfly Brooch - At 3 1/4" x almost 4" this piece gets noticed, but it does not give the effect of being gawdy, even at this size, because of the open sections and delicate colors. Pale pink oval and marquise cabs are surrounded by rose pink ovals, marquises and rounds, and the rest of the design is done in clear rhinestone pave. Silvertone setting. I purchased this about 15 years ago from a Canadian dealer, and it was not new then; I am guessing this is about 25 years old. This is actually marked "500" and has an unreadable signature.

Item: UP1-838

Description: Black Diamond and Clear Rhinestone Necklace - While I am sure this isn't a Bogoff piece, whoever manufactured it was certainly going for that look. Black diamond octagonal rhinestones are surmounted with gently curved clear rhinestone set lines, and a single clear rhinestone between each black diamond stone. Each black diamond stone is on a separate link so that this has a lot of flexibility and lays well. Black diamond design goes most of the way around, with an adjustable clear rhinestone hook and tail on either side, with the tail ending with a black diamond rhinestone baguette. Silvertone plating, adjustable up to about 15 1/4", 1/2" wide. Excellent condition with just a bit of yellowing on some of the clear stones.

Description: Unsigned Haskell Dress Clip - When I found the dress clip pictured on the top picture, it had a plastic perforated back and was almost identical to another unsigned Haskell dress clip that I had in my personal collection. (See middle picture of both clips side by side.) Unfortunately when I tested the clip to make sure it worked properly, the plastic perforated back cracked and started to fall apart. So I decided to take it completely apart and re-sew it to a metal perforated back (see bottom picture). The top picture shows the completed piece. It should now be ready for another 70 or so years! About 2 1/4" x 1 3/4", with high quality crystal in graduated sizes and small seed beads at the end of each dangle. Brass leaves at top of piece are in two sections.

Description: Light Colorado Topaz, Smokey Topaz and Aurora Borealis Rhinestone Necklace and Earring "Set" - Actually this is probably not a set, but a great marriage; it was sold to me as a set and other than the exact match I think you would be hard put to find a better match so I am including them. Huge 14mm dentelles in light Colorado topaz are dogtooth set in pairs on either side of an aurora borealis set goldtone flower, and accented with smokey topaz rhinestone marquises and rounds. Chain is done in dark brown rhinestones with graduated aurora borealis and smoked topaz rhinestone accents. All pronged set; 14mm stones are in "piecrust" settings and this is probably an unsigned Schreiner piece; necklace is adjustable to 16", with a hook and chain closure, chain has three prong set brown rhinestones dangling as a decoration. Earrings are marked "Made Austria" with rounds and marquises in the same three colors of stones as the necklace, clip findings, 1" in diameter.

Description: Taupe and Lime Green Enamel and Glass Necklace - Lovely soft colors make this flattering necklace a joy to wear. Transparent glass beads have a taupe-brown swirl that appears to be right under the surface. These alternate with frosted, aurora borealis and carmel bicone beads. Endcaps are enameled metal in the same soft brown, and the metal spacer end caps that look like the bottom part of a flower are done in a lime green that adds just enough color to keep this from looking dull. Wonderful on the light greens that continue to be fashionable. Fancy handwired clasp is a push-in v type. Necklace measures about 21"; largest bead is about 5/8" in diameter.

Item: UN1-163

Price: $65.00 US

Description: Aqua and Clear Rhinestone Necklace and Bracelet Set - Large oval aqua rhinestones are surrounded by clear rhinestone borders and each link is connected with a single large clear dentelle round. Necklace finishes with a rhinestone set link chain similar to the types Bogoff used (this does not appear to be Bogoff) and ends with a push in invisible clasp. 3/4" wide in front, back link chain is approx. 3/16". About 14" long and probably meant to be worn as a dog collar. Bracelet follows the pattern of the front of the necklace, 6 7/8", with hidden push in clasp and safety chain. Excellent condition, very nice quality. I would date this to very late 1950's. Silvertone setting.

Description: Unsigned All Handwired Glass Bead Necklace - This is an amazing example of workmanship done in a floral motif, using chalk white, frosted clear and emerald green glass leaf beads. The frosted clear glass has been formed into flowers with a prong-set clear rhinestone wired in like a roses montee, except that it isn't flat-backed. Series of leaves have been separated by clusters of chalk white beads. Link chain is done by alternating a different chalk white bead alternated with the frosted bead. Adjustable up to about 16". Possibly European. Lovely.

Description: DeLizza & Elster aka Juliana Fall Colors Brooch - A popular color combination for this manufacturer, this uses unfoiled smokey topaz and olivine/green tourmaline marquises, as well as hyacinth (orange) and sun (yellow-orange) rhinestones. 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 3/4" deep (layered design makes this quite 3 dimensional.) All stones are prong set, goldtone.

Item: UP1-660

Price: $45.00 US

•••

Description: Goldtone Sawtooth Necklace with Dangling Beads - Okay, what to call this - it's not mesh, but similar, with goldtone pseudo stones linked with jump rings into a v'd or triangular pattern, all connected at the top with a fine goldtone chain. I added the onyx dangling beads years ago, you may wish to replace with something else or just wear without dangles; you could conceivably hang something from every ring along the bottom edge if you wanted to! Hook closure, about 16" (you could easily add an extension), and 1 3/4" at widest points without the dangles. Excellent condition, fun piece.

Item: UN1-833

Price: $52.50 US

•••

Description: Top Quality Topaz Keystone Rhinestones and Jonquil Baguettes - All prong set, these earrings use 10 topaz "keystone" shaped rhinestones that surround light yellow baguettes set end to end. Clip findings are the type used by Pennino, but these are unsigned except for a patent number on one of the clip backs. Slightly domed, 1 1/2" x 3/4". Excellent condition and absolutely lovely.

Item: UE1-542

Price: $39.50 US

Description: Purple Rhinestone Three Row Expansion Bracelet - A rare color for an expansion bracelet, and in excellent condition, with all stones bright and sparkly. Goldtone setting, just a little wear to the plating on one area of the inside of the bracelet

Item: UB1-537

•••

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.

Item: US1-762

Price: $64.50 US

Description: DeLizza and Elster Pink/Blue White Givre Brooch - An alternate matching brooch for the grand parure shown on page 2 of unsigned, US2-481, using pink and white givre round stones and light blue givre marquises, all accented with pink rhinestones. All stones are pronged; layered construction with built in clasp and "figure 8" soldering can be seen in the backside picture. 2" in diameter, excellent condition.

Item: UP1-599

Price: $95.00 US

•••

Description: Red Baguette and Pave Rhinestone Bracelet - Absolutely amazing real look bracelet with 510 stones total. Red baguettes are channel set in links that alternate with pave set links, with each link having a set of "wings" that goes off on each side. Hidden foldover clasp, safety chain, 7" x 1". A few of the clear rhinestones are replacements and one has darkened somewhat but otherwise excellent original condition. Silvertone, probably rhodium, plating. Fit for a queen.

Item: UB1-646

Price: $145.00 US

•••

Description: DeLizza and Elster Hinged Clamper Bracelet in Blue Moonstone/BlueAB Rhinestones - A confirmed D&E style, this uses medium blue glass moonstones in ovals and rounds with blue aurora borealis rhinestones. All stones are pronged; usual clamper frame with squared wire in silvertone, symmetrical design, 1" wide at widest center point, 2" x 2 1/8".
