    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...

      Gorgeous! I've never seen keystones like these before. They are absolutely stunning. Thanks for sharing this most beautiful set and congratulations on finding the bracelet! :D

      That's a wowzer from me.
    3. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      Ken, I know! Right? Most keystones are smaller and wider.
      When I first saw the bracelet I thought ( for just a moment) they were pentagon stones, which are rarer still. Thank you for your kind words, my friend :)

      Gillian...thanks for the "wowzer"!

      Jenni, thank you dear!
      You have a way of commenting on our jewelry like no one else.
      It's the necklace that will probably bankrupt me!
      Though I have NEVER seen one on the market, so wish me luck... I'm going to need it. LOL

      Glad that the piece waited there for you! Less money = far far more fun :)

      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 !~

      stunning set!!
    8. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      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.

      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!

      Good luck finding the next piece. Usually, it happens when you least expect it:)

      Hi Cousin!
      Isn't it all I said it was?
      Be talking with you soon...everyone was staring at me on the phone in Vons..Ha!
    12. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      Freiheit..thank you, and you are so right!
      It might be just around the corner!
      Good way of thinking...( dreaming)

      I love finding more!!! to complete sets. Gorgeous bracelet. My favorite colors.
    14. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago 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!
    16. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year 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....
    18. plein-air-painter, 3 months 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'.
    20. Gillian, 3 months ago

      Please don't open the link I sent you. I made a mistake, for which I do apologize.
    21. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 months 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
