FRENCH
foiled glass cabochon links necklace and earrings made in France for Dior. The
glowing cabochons are a color I have never seen before, a sort of blue,
gray, silver combination, gorgeous and surrounded by clear rhinestones, all
set in silver tone metal.. Just wonderful in person. Each piece is marked
"MADE IN FRANCE". The back shows crimping of the stones, like Countess Cissy Zoltowska CIS designs, the "S" hook clasp in similar to vintage Dior
pieces, and this is why I make this attribution. In excellent condition,
this set will be the highlight of any collection. Courtesy of Lee Kalmus.

JAC
Jorge Alberto Cohen, Netherlands, Art Deco style marcasite and 835
silver bracelet, brooch and earrings with embossed and partially frosted and
embossed glass inserts, marcasites and onyx bar links, circa 1980. The
bracelet is 7-1/3" by 1-5/8", brooch 4" by 1-5/8", and pendant clip back
earrings 2-1/3". Other pieces by this Dutch maker can be seen in the Christie’s
Elizabeth Taylor Auction in December 2011,

. Mr. Cohen was based in Amsterdam, but has since passed away. He
was born in 1941 and died in 1993. According to Ginger Moro’s wonderful
book, "European Designer Jewelry" on page 233, Cohen found vintage molded
glass elements in Paris and combined them with modern silver, onyx,
marcasites, and chrysoprase to fashion his Deco inspired jewelry. According
to Cohen, he was also inspired by the Amsterdam School designs from earlier
in the 20th Century.

rather than a shiny finish.
