An absolutely stunning citrine bracelet and earring set from the Art Deco (ca1930's) era! This wonderful compilation set is made of continental silver and has a very ornate and detailed design. The earrings begin with a swirled filigree link that dangles below a screw back topper. Dangling below the surmount is a gorgeous bezel set citrine surrounded by a decorative silver border. The citrines are fairly large and have an oval shape which bulges outward with a beautifully faceted surface. On the back of each surmount is the stamp "IN ITALY." The screw back style allows the earrings to be worn on pierced or unpierced ears, but they could be easily converted to wires or posts if desired. Scrolled and flowing, these dangling earrings have wonderful movement and look incredibly elegant when worn!
The bracelet carries a complimentary swirled filigree design, which frames each of the 5 oval citrines in their bezel settings. Alternating with the framed citrine's is an ornate filigree link with a swirled pattern and floral motif, including a delicate flower resting in the center. The feminine filigree wirework design is simply incredible and displays excellent craftsmanship! The bracelet fastens together with a simple silver spring clasp, which attaches to one of the filigree links. This gorgeous set looks wonderful when worn together and would make an outstanding addition to any collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 2" long, are 1/2" at their widest point and 1/4" at their thickest point. The bracelet measures 7 3/4" long, is 5/8" at the widest point and approximately 1/4" at the thickest point.

The earring screw backs are secure and in good working condition. The bracelet clasp is also secure and in good working condition.
