Delizza Elster Schreiner 1950s Vintage Bracelet Juliana Opal Glass w Black Leaves
You could spend and endless amount of time online looking for another vintage bracelet like this one... and chances are you will not find one.
This elegant bracelet is a very uncommon open work design from the 1950s. The bracelet is not signed but it was made by either Delizza and Elster or Schreiner.
Made of gold plated metal, the bracelet is a repeating pattern of faceted marquise black glass leaves framed by white moonstone glass beads. The moonstone glass is clear with white canes, lending the look of Opals, or commonly called Opalescent glass.
What really throws me off concerning exactly who made this bracelet is the style of the fold over box clasp (with 3 raised dots on the top) and the shape of the ring clasp. We all know D&E made jewelry for a long list of US designers but I've never seen this sort of clasp used. The clasp pushes me to lean more towards Schreiner.
The bracelet is an uncommon wide design and all of the cabs are prong set. When clasped, the bracelet is 7 1/2" long x 1 1/4" wide or 190 mm x 32 mm.
The entire bracelet has been very well cared for and all of the cabs are original and present and in flawless condition with no scratches, scuffs, chips, or cracks. The gold plating on the top, the sides, and the clasp is not worn and looks like new. The back has light to moderate gold wear. The clasp is in perfect working order.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation bracelet box.
