PEACOCK EYE parure set in textured silver with colorful glass peacock eye cabochons and dangly earrings with clip backs. It is not often you find an entire matching group like this one.

The necklace is 17-1/2" and each leaf is 1-3/4"; the bracelet is 7" by 1"; the smaller earrings are 1" long, and the dangling clip back earrings 2-5/8" top to bottom. It has the older tube style closure on the necklace and it is all in excellent condition.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
