    Amethyst & Peridot Flower 1950s Brooch by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    Shades of amethyst and peridot navettes and round rhinestones are layered like petals in this flower-shaped 1950s Alice Caviness brooch. A lovely art glass stone forms the center of the flower. The setting is gold-tone with a roll-over safety clasp. I think this designer's work is often overlooked.

    Citrine, Golden Topaz & Mother of Pearl 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    This 1950s brooch and earrings set by Alice Caviness features amazing layers of citrine crystals, golden topaz beads, mother-of-pearl disks and textured brass leaves wired onto a decorative frame, which is mounted on another frame with the pin and roll-over safety clasp. The complexity of the design and construction seen here are often present in this maker's work, which I believe is underrated. This set is definitely not for the faint-hearted! I will include the matching bracelet, which has only three of its four strands of beads, but it is definitely wearable. I have a similar pair of earrings by the same maker – scroll down to see them.

    Citrine, Golden Topaz & Mother of Pearl 1950s Earrings by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    These 1950s earrings by Alice Caviness feature layers of citrine and golden topaz glass beads along with aurora borealis rhinestones, mother-of-pearl disks and textured brass leaves.  The elements are wired onto a brass mesh back with ear clips.  This is the type of creation by this maker that leads me to say that she is under-rated.  These earrings are just plain fun!  I have a brooch and earrings set by Caviness that is similar – scroll down to see it.

    Diamanté 1950s Earrings by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    These 1950s diamanté earrings are definitely "top-of-the-line Alice Caviness jewelry!" (Julia Carroll). They feature large octagonal clear rhinestones with clear crystal beads and diamanté-studded beads attached to a filigree disk. The position of the large stones and their faceting maximize the flash the earrings produce. They are so flashy though that they're difficult to photograph — the yellow that appears along the edges of some of the stones is only a reflection. The silver-tone settings have clip-backs, which, unfortunately, are too short to sustain the weight of the large bottom stone in each earring. A clever buyer could remove that stone and attach smaller stones and/or crystal beads to the filigree back, and make these earrings more wearable.

    Onyx & Crystal Bi-color Bead 1950s Earrings by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    Clusters of black and clear glass bi-colored beads form these 1950s earrings by Alice Caviness. Some of the beads have caps of silver-tone filigree, while other caps are solid metal. These clip-backs were designed in the starburst or atomic motif that was popular in the '50s, yet so versatile and wearable now! What's curious is the way the earrings are signed: the maker's name is stamped on one earring clip and applied to an oval cartouche on the mounting of the other earring.
