Vintage Jay Flex Brooch & Earrings Demi Parure Blue Rhinestone Sterling Silver
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a striking demi-parure, consisting of earrings and brooch made by Montreal based jewelry manufacturer Jay Flex.
Jay Flex was in business from the 1930s until the 1960s, and although a direct competitor to the better known Montreal based manufacturer Sherman, remains under appreciated. Jay Flex always used sterling silver settings, but coloured rhinestones are much less common than clear rhinestones in Jay Flex jewelry. Every now and then, however, you find coloured rhinestones in a piece of Jay Flex.
The brooch is made in a rounded rectangular shape and the earrings are made in petaled forms. The stones are made in a blue colour and the sterling silver is made in a combination of fillgree and solid silver. The brooch measures 2 1/4” by 1” while the earrings measure about 3/4” in diameter. The earrings have screw back fasteners. All three pieces in very good condition with no wear, missing stones or repairs - this is a very nicely preserved demi of excellent quality.
This is a gorgeous set - really has the look of high-end jewelry!
