DUJAY rare flower bracelet, the most amazing I have ever seen! Each
link is centered with a clusters of clear rhinestone paved roses with a
rose colored glass cabochon in the middle, rich and delicious. And
around each flower are green enameled leaves and more clear rhinestones.
The bridges between each link are purple square rhinestones and the
entirety is set in silver tone. The clear rhinestones show an even
slight graying typical of pieces this age circa 1940. There is no
signature. The bracelet is 7-1/4" wearable and 1-1/4" wide, and is is
secured by a double clasp and a safety chain. There are scratches on the
back side only, but nothing that detracts from this amazing bracelet. A
smaller version of this piece is in Deanna Cera's book "Amazing Gems" on
page 121 where it is circa dated 1935.
unsigned flower and leaves brooch with rich purple glass beads center,
clear rhinestone accents and translucent green enameled leaves, just
fabulous. It is a large 4-1/2" by 2-1/2" brooch with a gilt
finish, circa 1940. A few of the clear stones have grayed over time, and
there is very light wear to some of the finish, but it is otherwise in
excellent condition, a true treasure. While it is not signed, I believe
it is by DuJay, and it has the pin stem that opens only 45 degrees,
typical of that maker as well.
