    This beautiful unmarked brooch has fuschia pink chaton round rhinestones w/amethyst colored navettes. The size is just under 2.5". I saw a different color combination of my brooch on Rubylane - sold as Juliana D&E - first seen in 1968 so did a little research. There are 2 very good Juliana resource books out there (which I don't have, so can't look through). I am sure some of you have these books. They are "The Art of Juliana Jewelry" by Katerina Musetti and "DeLizza & Elster" by Ann Mitchell Pitman.

    My online research: vintagejewelry.wikidot.com/Juliana-a-k-a-d-e

    "Delizza & Elster - 1947 - 1990

    Delizza and Elster manufactured jewelry of the highest quality. It is important to know that D&E manufactured jewelry for a multitude of different makers (such as Hollycraft, Weiss, and Judy Lee) so not all D&E jewelry is part of their "Juliana" line but all "Juliana" jewelry was designed and made by D&E. Always very solidly made this company unfortunately never signed their pieces but did paper label a line called Juliana in the late 60's.

    The D&E stands for the last names of co-founders William DeLizza and Harold Elster that founded the company in 1947. The name "Juliana" comes from the name that was printed on the paper hangtags & display cards attached to their jewelry (which was never signed). Because their "Juliana" jewelry was never signed, it leads to a LOT of confusion about what is and what is not actually Juliana. Below are some tips on how to identify if your jewelry piece is actually Juliana or not. Never assign the name "Juliana" or call something "Juliana Style" unless you're sure it was one of their pieces. This merely leads to a frustration in buyers.

    Juliana - 1967 - 1968
    Juliana is the 'house' brand label of Delizza and Elster. This company’s high quality rhinestone jewelry is unmarked and can only be identified through particular manufacturing techniques. Keep in mind that the colorful highly sought after pieces of Juliana jewelry aren't the only things they produced. Lots of clear crystal rhinestone pins/brooches on rhodium settings were hugely popular in the late 40s and early 50s."

      Beautiful! This design has been referred as "sticks & stones". I too, love D& E.
    9. valentino97 valentino97, 10 months ago
      Eileen - thanks, it's a pretty timeless D&E design, not too complex, lets the design and colors shine through. Hope to meet you in 2020 or as Bill says "the new roaring 20's).

      I forgot to mention.. your info on D & E is right on! I have been saying it for years..
      All Juliana jewelry is D & E,
      But not all D & E is Juliana.
      Some people just can’t seem to get the concept, but hey, we know, right?

      Eileen - this lovely brooch was a gift. It's not really my color but I pin it with my grey and clear scatter pins on vintage 40's jacket and YES, it works and is so lovely. I've seen at least 2 other colorways featured here on CW that are as stunning. I think I copied your D&E research LOL Thanks for your expertise.... NOW, what went with it? A necklace might be too busy. Earrings and bracelet would work.

      Hope we can meet up in the Roaring 20's!
