"ALICE CAVINESS" on oval cartouche on brooch & one earring
This brooch and earrings by Alice Caviness features jade art glass, faux pearls, and glass stones in amethyst, sapphire, ruby, and citrine. This set is another great example of this maker’s artistry with bold colors and high-quality stones. The gem-colored stones are a lovely contrast to the jade art glass, which has the same white markings as real jade. The setting is gold-tone metal. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are clip-backs.
In this 1950s bracelet is another color combination that shouts Schiaparelli's name: here her signature color (shocking pink) is paired with red, black and clear rhinestones set in heavy silver-tone metal. This statement bracelet has a fold-over clasp and safety chain. What a glorious piece!
Here is another creation fashioned from richly-textured leaves, one of Schiaparelli's favorite motifs, this time forming a 1950s bracelet and earrings set. The silver-tone metal bracelet closes with a fold-over clasp and safety chain, and the matching earrings are clip-backs. A tailored, classic and elegant look.
These faceted kite-shaped glass stones in sapphire blue and smoky grey are another example of the high-quality materials and imaginative combinations of shapes and colors in Schiaparelli jewelry. Here the shape of this 1950s brooch is mirrored in the shape of the stones, with round glass stones with an aurora borealis (AB) finish used as accents. The AB stones add an iridescence that changes with the light. The setting is rhodium-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this gorgeous piece in a variety of positions -- the photos show it vertically, so it looks like a kite, horizontally and at a right angle. You decide which of these choices you prefer, or you may think of another!
