Ora Rhinestone Parure: Necklace/Bracelet/Earrings
This is a lovely old set made by the Ora company, started by two Italian immigrants back in the 1920s. Ora Jewelry is very high quality, only using Swarovski stones. They made pieces for the Eisenberg company before Eisenberg started to manufacture for themselves. All older (20s/30s) pieces were unsigned, according to the daughter of the owner of the company. Since these pieces are signed, I'm dating them late 40s/early 50s. You can see the quality - the stones are still bright after all these years and the metal is untarnished. The necklace consists of one strand of pave-set silver-tone metal tulip links, ending in a rhinestone fold over clasp. The bracelet has a double-strand of the same links, and has a safety chain for extra peace of mind. The screw-back earrings has three graduated tulip links and are drop-style. All pieces are marked Ora on the back and are in excellent condition. The necklace measures 15" in length, and is 1/2" wide. The bracelet measures 7 1/2" long and almost 1" wide. The earrings measure 1 1/2" 1/2" at widest.
