Breathtaking Vintage Purple Glass & Embossed Flower Parure
Breathtaking in all aspects, this vintage parure features a necklace, bracelet and earrings set with both emerald cut faceted purple glass and round purple glass disks with gilded flowers and small faux pearls. The emerald cut stones are foiled on the backs, the round disks are faceted on the bottom of the stones and open back, allowing the light to glow through! The gold tone metal is in excellent condition. The necklace is adjustable to 19" and has a pendulum style drop. It is 1" wide. The bracelet measures just a hair under 8" and has a toggle clasp. and yes, these clasps were used on vintage pieces! The matching clip back earrings measure 1 1/4". This set is in phenomenal condition, the only flaw I can find is one missing prong on a round stone on the bracelet. As there are multiple prongs all around the stone, it is held securely. I have also tightened all the prongs on this set. Due to the construction on this set, I am comfortable attributing to Austria or Germany for construction, but as it is unsigned, the maker will have to remain a mystery!
