Schiaparelli Bookpiece Bracelet and Earring Set
This is a fabulous and striking set from Schiaparelli. It consists of a stunning bracelet and matching earrings that show the extravagence and inventiveness of Schiaparelli's genius. Each piece consists of a repeated element - an oval goldtone disc shape loaded with luscious rich blue-green ab stones. The bracelet has five such discs, each containing three huge irridescent cab stones, surrounded by ab rhinestones which are both round and chaton cut, and finally sea-green faceted accent stones. Each earring consists of one disc and contains two cabs, plus ab rhinestones.
Bracelet measures 7 1/4" long (18cms), with original safety chain. Earrings measure 1 3/8" by 1" (3.5 by 2.5cms). All pieces signed in script. Excellent condition. An almost identical set appears on page 111 of Judith Miller's 'Costume Jewelry' (DK Publishing). The full parure appears in Ginger Moro's 'European Designer Jewellery' (P86). This is one for the true collector!
