    I picked these up last week at Volunteer's. At first I saw the ring in the ring tray. Two cases over I found the ear rings and then the pendant was on the bottom shelf. Finding these and putting them all back together was sheer luck. Any one could have been sold separately. The other great thing is the only marked piece is the ring which says "Judy Lee" inside the band. I would have never found out where they came from had it not been for the ring. There's no question they all go together as they are all identical. Each piece is about the size of a dime. A single large amber stone in the center and the rest studded with multi-colored rhinestones. I'm thinking it is possible that it might even be a made up set from from two pendants being used for the ear rings. They have posts for pierced ears and not clips. Could have been modified too but that's a mystery I'll never know for sure unless I find and old catalog. -Mike-

    Judy Lee History

    www.collectiblejewels.com

    This info on Judy Lee jewelry is from Fred Rezazadeh's book, "Costume Jewelry A Practical Handbook & Value Guide":

    "Judy Lee is the trademark belonging to the Blanch-Ette Company, founded in the late 1950s. The company employed marketing and distribution methods similar to Emmons and Coventry. The jewelry is of average quality and not very common in the market. Some of the pieces have interesting traditional designs set with top quality rhinestones. Although collectible, Judy Lee jewelry has not yet captured the interest of many collectors. Some dealers put a high asking price on their Judy Lee jewelry, but most of it can be purchased at average prices. Judy Lee jewelry is usually marked Judy-Lee (in use since 1958).
