A darling sterling silver and marcasite rose jewelry set. This set includes earrings, bracelet and a necklace created from stemmed roses studded with marcasite stones. The roses are also rhodium plated sterling silver so they have not tarnished over the years. The earrings are a single rose with adjustable screwbacks. The bracelet has ten roses with a foldover clasp and safety chain. The necklace has seven roses attached to a chain and a spring ring clasp.
All pieces are signed sterling but there is no makers mark. I was able to locate a pin that matches this set that was from Ideal Manufacturing Inc. which was in Providence, RI. It is possible this was also made by that company as well.
Condition: In excellent condition. There is some patina on the necklace chain and some of the findings. The chain on the bracelet is a replacement.
Earrings = 22 mm high by 13 mm wide.
Necklace= 16 inches long. You can easily extend it by adding an extender chain at the clasp.
Bracelet= 7-7.25 inches long to fit an average sized wrist up to 6.5 inches.
