This designer signed Alice Caviness necklace and earring parure is probably one of the last 1990's designs made before Alice Caviness Jewelry went out of business in 1997. This is a formal set but it can also be dressed down for more relaxed occasions.
This collar style necklace is made of two strands of acrylic lustrous white disk pearls spaced every 1 1/2" with sparkling clear rhinestone rhondells. The large gold leaf medallions are stacked and layered and brilliantly textured in micro-nugget rose gold metal. Each leaf has a clear rhinestone row down the center rib.
The necklace is a unique design as the top strand of pearls hangs in a V shape and the lower strand of pearls hangs in a double swag. The matching clip earrings are a single leaf design.
The necklace can be hooked between 18" and 20" long or 45 cm to 50 cm. The original matching pearl extension chain is in place. The pearl strands are finished with rhinestone clad silver rhodium findings. The gold leaf medallion is 3" long x 2" wide or 7.5 cm x 5 cm and is not heavy to wear. The clip earrings are 1 1/2" long x 1" wide or 3.8 cm x 2.5 cm.
This parure is in pristine like new never worn condition. The entire set is microscopically clean and brilliant. All of the pearls and the gold are perfect and all of the rhinestones are original, present, and sparkling clear. The necklace and the earrings are both signed Alice Caviness. The signatures on the earrings is plain to read but the signature on the necklace is a faint impression; just how it was made.
