This brooch and earrings set is absolutely beautiful. I bought them last year and love wearing them. They are marked with the block NAPIER which was first used in 1922. I have done a lot of research but have not seen NAPIER from that era with this color rhinestones. Could it be that they were changed at some point? I am not sure. Any suggestions?

Thanks to Melinda Lewis the mystery is solved. Here is what she wrote:
"Your lovely brooch is from the 1950s. It is one of several pieces that were made for this collection and comes in three colors, amber, teal, and sapphire. It's important to note that the block NAPIER mark was used all the way into the mid-2000s. It's the finding and the other elements which will help you determine its age."

    Dr.Fully,

    Your lovely brooch is from the 1950s. It is one of several pieces that were made for this collection and comes in three colors, amber, teal, and sapphire. It's important to note that the block NAPIER mark was used all the way into the mid-2000s. It's the finding and the other elements which will help you determine its age. Happy hunting for the other pieces. Best, Melinda Lewis

    DrFluffy,

    Unfortunately, right now we don't have an e-version of the book. Perhaps down the line. We just published and if the market has a big calling for an ebook we might take that on.
