The two classical wreath sets are opaque ... and opaque plus coloured rhinestone Sherman brooch and clip earring sets. Each opague+ set came to me complete in 2018. These colours and stones are difficult to discover. All pieces are marked — the brooches in rectangular cartouches. Note the two different clip style of the earrings. At the time of this writing, majority thought is that the smaller clip is a newer make. These two sets are gold-plated, as are all Christmas Colours sets I have seen so far. To be precise, these opague+ stone/colour groupings are not what are affectionately termed Christmas Colours; yet I quite like them both, and thought they were appropriate for a post at this time of year.
The third, a tiered spiral cluster crystal/rhinestone brooch was created using three colours. The navettes are Emerald, Emerald AB and Sapphire. Edge stones are Emerald AB. The set is japanned. All pieces are marked.
Jade wreath —1 3/4”
Jade, Emerald, Sapphire AB Wreath — approx. 2”
Emerald, Emerald AB, Sapphire Spiral Cluster Brooch — 2”
Merry Christmas! or
