Vintage Barclay Rhinestone Floral Leaf Brooch Earrings Demi Parure
Vintage Barclay Rhinestone Floral Leaf Brooch Earrings Demi Parure is truly stunning with a design construction that is unique while providing a classic three dimensional presentation of this openwork floral leaf. The central piece of this leaf design provides depth while also serving as a means for covering the riveted setting for the pink rhinestone sprays that flow from the leaf and appear to simply be a part of the leaf. Each leaf stem is accented by pave set rhinestones and all pink rhinestones are prong set. Although not tested, these pieces do have the appearance of being gold filled. At the very least, they are gold plated. The matching earrings have the same great design. This demi is a great jewelry set to add to your collection, a great set to pull out anytime to make a classic and gorgeous statement to any outfit.
This is an awesome set estimated to be from the late 1940s. Barclay split from Rice-Wiener in the early forties and opened for business as Barclay in 1946. As they closed their doors in 1957, they were only in business for a short time, making their pieces rare and hard to find.
Excellent condition in every way, the finish on these pieces leaves a feeling of being "awash" in gold. The pink rhinestones are all prong set and have excellent color. There are 2 of the pave set rhinestones that appear to have darkened a bit but certainly nothing that detracts from this magnificent set. The brooch measures 2 3/4" tall and 2 1/2" wide and the earrings measure 1" tall and 3/4" wide. The pieces have all been cleaned. However, because of the detailed construction that lies beneath the central part of the design, you may wish to have this cleaned more thoroughly that what I was able to do.
I have a vast inventory of some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Kramer, Krementz, Lane, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Avon, Coro, Sara Coventry, and Lisner.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many have matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
This piece comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected various antiques and unsigned and signed designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me and I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories and other collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.
Received item exactly as described. Very happy with my purchase, thanks.
What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
Very special gift for myself
