Juliana Five-link Necklace & Earrings Set Rhinestone & Faux Pearl Clusters Rare For Sale
style="text-decoration:none" height="27px" valign="middle" face="arial"
is a truly amazing five-link necklace and earrings set by D & E / Juliana, with faux pearls, rhinestones and faceted glass, prong-set in silver-tone metal. This is an older set, based on the construction and the "8-shaped" pot metal back. The necklace and the earrings are large and quite heavy. There is some peeling on a number of pearl beads, which is visible upon close inspection, other than that this is still a very attractive and highly collectible demi parure. History:
JULIANA/ DE LIZZA & ELSTER: 1947 - Late 1990s (Old Juliana Designs Are Being Recreated Today))
Designer William De Lizza and Harold Elster founded the De Lizza & Elster Company (D & E) about 1947 with William’s sons, Frank and Anthony joining around 1948. In the beginning, the company made buckles, buttons and jewelry that were hand-set and prong-set with beautiful rhinestones, simulated stones and pearls in metal plating of gold and silver. The company became a major costume jewelry manufacturer, and by 1953, produced their own costume jewelry, unmarked, with multi-color and multi-layer lines labeled Juliana. In 1967, the company marked the pieces with a hand tag "Juliana". But the name tag was only used by the company for 2 years, otherwise the jewelry was not marked. The D & E Company made jewelry for other companies including Weiss, Alice Caviness, Celebrity, Hobe, Hattie Carnegie, Kenneth J. Lane, Karu, and Kramer. Harold Elster died in 1964. The De Lizza & Elster Company closed in the late 1990s but it has been said that Frank De Lizza, William De Lizza’s son, and original creator of the Juliana line of jewelry, is currently producing copies of a few of his old designs through a contractor in Brooklyn, NY. Frank De Lizza has helped collectors and dealers to determine and identify the Juliana line and the D & E pieces. He has indicated that he prefers the jewelry to be known as De Lizza & Elster but Juliana is still the familiar name to collectors and dealers.
