    I purchased this set at an estate sale in Calgary in 2017, and it is not signed. It is in Mint condition. The metal is goldtone.

    The estate was that of a Norwegian couple who had collected beautiful early Fenton glass, European treadle sewing machines, two grand pianos, and a massive library of leather-bound books. I was quite shocked that all her jewelry was unsigned, including this set. I bought other pieces, as well; several appear to be German.

    I am interested in opinions about country of origin ... or maker for this. Thank you.

      I love the gold rhinestone balls which make one wonder why they are not wildly popular for the young set these days, life span revolves and so does the span of jewelry !~

      Very beautiful set, great estate find

      Who-ever did make this set, it’s definitely high-end. The plating is gorgeous, and all the stones are prong set. Two plusses for sure. With literally 1000’s of jewelry designers after the turn of the century, it would be very hard, if not impossible, to ID the maker. Unless someone knows the construction traits of said maker. If I were to guess, and that’s all this is, this lovely set looks, to me, to be Hobe’. I have been looking at a lot of Hobe’ lately. Their jewelry designs were very diverse, from one extreme to the other, all fabulous!

      Phil — Agree. Colours in this are so vivid. My photography ... and no amount of attention to light seems to result in true representation.

      Thank you, Jenni.

      Ms.CrystalShip — Thank you, Eileen. I’ll look at Hobe for this.

      Thanks for the Loves —

      I have these exact earrings I got them from my grandmothers stuff when she passed a few years back. She owned an antique shop. I’ve been trying to find some info on these so I could sell them but haven’t been able to find nothing except this post and a post a came across years ago which stated they were worth $10,000 but unfortunately I lost that info and can’t remember why they were worth so much or anything about them and everything I find that’s close to these are not even near that in price. I really hope someone will wonder across this and know some info on these

      hollinoel7 — Great to know of another set of these ... earrings. I truly cannot assist beyond what I have already said. I don’t know who made this set. If I say there seems to be disco or dance ball influence, will I have reached beyond the true message of the items? Perhaps. Gorgeous stone colours, settings, metal tone! Good success with your quest.
