1940s Retro Gold Filled "Aquamarine" Parure

535.00

What a perfect example of Retro design! This parure (3 piece set) was made right around 1940 and is truly exceptional in quality, style and beauty. The metal is 1/20 12k gold filled and has a lovely rose gold hue. The oversized emerald cut glass stones are meant to represent the highest quality Aquamarine and indeed their color gives that impression! The brooch doubles as a pendant and is paired with a removable 15” chain of the same period. The hanging elements on the left and right of the stone swing slightly which give the piece a great sense of movement. The earrings duplicate that effect with the same hanging element swinging below a smaller emerald cut “Aquamarine”. The backs are fitted with a screw back mechanism which is typical of the period and is easily adjustable to be worn securely and comfortably whether or not you have pierced ears. The third piece in the group is an incredibly glamorous bracelet. Again, featuring a glass “Aquamarine” mounted so stylishly, flanked by baguette cut rhinestones and large scale metal details and slinky chain. This grouping is the epitome of 1940s style and is exactly the kind of thing you’re sure to spot being worn by the Hollywood starlets of that era.
