Early 19th Century French Jewelry Suite
A magnificent Early 19th century 4 piece set - necklace, bracelet, earrings and pin - in its original fitted green leather box. This beautiful suite features white opals set into ornate plaques, in the classic French style, with contrasting black enamel. The opals are punctuated with small rose-cut diamonds. The long drop earrings are particularly dramatic and can be worn long or short. This is a superb and lovely collection to be worn on very special occasions. French hallmarks, Paris. The measurements of the pieces are as follows: Brooch: 2 inches by 1 1/16 inch. Earrings: 2 3/4 inches by 3/4 inch. Bracelet: 7 inches by 7/8 inch. Necklace: 16 1/2 inches.
