Art Deco Sterling & Rock Quartz Pools of Light 3 Piece Set
A fantastic and unusual rock quartz crystal 3-piece set from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This wonderful set comes in the original box and is comprised of a necklace, a bracelet, and a pair of matching earrings. Traditionally known as "Pools of Light", the set is comprised of smooth spheres of rock quartz crystal, each held within a thin sterling silver wire frame that wraps around the diameter. The extra long beaded necklace is comprised of 37 pools of light, and fastens with a simple spring clasp at the back. The matching bracelet is comprised of 9 pools of light crystals and fastens with a spring clasp with a safety chain added for extra security. Each earring is a screw back style and begins with a faceted crystal surmount. Dangling below is a single pool of light, which hangs freely from a strand of sterling chain. Pools of Light crystals have a striking appearance when worn and this set is particularly stunning and looks fabulous when worn as an ensemble. It would make an incredible addition to any collection!

Condition: The overall condition of this set is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or chips to any of the pools of light. The necklace and bracelet clasps are both secure and in good working condition. The earring screw backs are secure and in good working condition. The original box shows some signs of age and wear, which is normal for a piece from this era.
