WEISS Blue Snowflake Brooch & Earrings 1953
The Weiss Company was formed in New York in 1942 by Albert Weiss and the company produced jewellery until 1971. They had a reputation for producing quality costume jewellery using high quality Austrian stones. Here we have a wonderful display of pale sapphire colored blue crystal stones each one prong set and multi faceted to catch the light. The brooch is a substantial size at 6cms across and the earrings a little over 3cms across. They are clip on. The brooch is in pristine condition whilst there is a little wear to the back of the earrings which does not detract at all. The clips are firm and comfortable. All pieces are signed with the brooch having the cartouche with the WEISS signature which was used between 1952 & 1954. The colours of both the earrings and brooch match beautifully but may not have always been together. Whilst the earrings have six beautiful clear crystal baquette shaped stones, the brooch uses tear drop shaped pale blue crystals. A gorgeous set to be worn together, or apart, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
