What a beautiful, glittery rhinestone brooch and earring set! The dimensional, double-layer circular brooch is set with large 3 sizes of glass rhinestones, in blue, all with a flashy AB (aurora borealis) coating, which makes the stones change colors as the brooch moves. The matching glitzy earrings are also set with three sizes of stones. All three pieces are constructed with hand-soldered silvertone rhinestone backings. Excellent condition - the backings are clean, the earing paddles are tight, the rhinestones are set securely and are in remarkble condition. The brooch measures 2.25" across; the earrings are 1-1/8" across.
This set probably dates from the late 1950s or early 1960s. This versatile set is perfect for dressing up a business blazer, a cocktail dress, or even a blue jean jacket! (I wear a similar large, glittery brooch on my jeans jacket, and I get many compliments.)
