    Ms.Crystal…
    (112 items)

    I have been watching this bracelet for close to a year. D & E Keystone pieces are rare and very expensive, ( in my book anyway). I believe the only reason this piece was on the market so long was...
    #1-the price$$$
    #2- no one had matching pieces to go with it.
    When the seller dropped it more than 1/2 off, I snagged it!
    Was it worth the price she was asking? Yes, but it somehow takes some of the joy of finding a piece when you have to dole out the big bucks. I have never seen any of these pieces besides mine on the market. Circa...1963!
    Will I find the necklace and complete the set? Only time will tell...
    ENJOY!
    UPDATE: Since my post a year ago, I have seen some of these pieces in olive green and sapphire blue. Leave it to D & E, never too much of a good thing!

      Lovely set! Congrats on getting the bracelet!

      Beautiful use of stones and very unusual stone. When you can find an expensive piece for half price that is a real score, and expensive pieces, I love when they have rare stones and they are rare pieces. Sonetimes the big bucks pieces are the most sought after which can make you think hard before you dole out the bucks. But then you have some real rare pieces which make the collection soar !~

      Me too!, Me too!
      I just lucked out, which doesn't happen very often.
      Every time I checked on this bracelet, I thought it would be gone. This has happened more times than I can count. The price of waiting....

      Thank you so much Mrs.T.

      Phil...
      You are so right my friend. All I need now is the necklace. As of late, I have been trying to
      "finish" sets and it's not an easy thing to do. Pieces are just not out there, or if they are-$$$$
      As you know, collections like D & E, Grand Parure's, run into the four figures. I find it more challenging to collect one piece at a time. Not to mention my pocketbook couldn't handle it!

      Foseatme, so kind of you to say!

      And thank you for all the loves, dears!

      Freiheit..thank you, and you are so right!
      It might be just around the corner!
      Good way of thinking...( dreaming)

      Mary...me too!, me too!
      I love the earthy tone of this Cognac & Champagne colored Keystone set too!
      Finding a piece that, after so long, to match others is a joy, right?
      Thank you for the wonderful words, my friend!

      I am loving this! So beautiful; would love to have a set like this!
    15. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 years ago
      Thank you Raven...
      It's taken some time & I'm still not finished...
      But I'm working on it!
      Thanks again for the sweet words, much appreciated!

      I just learned this set also came in olive green, I still prefer the amber/ topaz combo....
    17. plein-air-painter, 1 year ago
      A truly gorgeous set. I think it is worth to spend the big bucks ( especially when I'm not doing it) lol. Just mean. You'll enjoy it, you'll wear it. and the synergy of a multi-piece set adds to the value of the bracelet. All good.

      This one is expensive - if indeed it is the 'one'.

      @Ms.CrystalShip

      Please don't open the link I sent you. I made a mistake, for which I do apologize.
    20. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      Gillian, you made no mistake! That’s my necklace (soon). Also there’s another brooch in this collection. Collecting D & E is sometimes a curse, there are so many pieces! And I want them all... and call me Eileen

      This one is just so gorgeous you cannot resist. The big buck sellers know how to milk us but that is the market ebay has made this timeline in history, we cannot escape, but I know how rare this set would be to even try to find !!!~ magnifique - wow this girl she's got style, shes got grace !~
