A kind French lady tells me that the initials stand for, "Laboratoire
Biologie Marine Daniel Jouvance", which was a company that made cosmetics in
the 1980s, as well as today. The bracelets were given as gifts to good
clients, and they are made of plastic. Even though it is more contemporary
than it looks, it is lovely to wear

made of 30 rhinestone brooch-shaped elements attached with golden
chain, said to be from the exclusive French Room of Hess Brothers of Allentown,
Pennsylvania, circa 1960s. This is difficult to photograph, but the brooch elements are lovely and remind me a
bit of Schreiner brooches, but they are not signed. Each has an art glass center
surrounded by colorful rhinestones in beautiful tones. This fits like a vest
with elements both front and back, and each brooch-like element is 2-1/3" by
2-1/8" in size. This lays better on a fabric with some weight,
like a sweater for instance. In over 20 years in the business, I have never
seen one like it!

lady brooch circa 1960.

But on the right, looking like her cousin, is a pendant marked "Germany

The owner says, "… this is a remarkable piece, one you are not likely to find
another. Since Nettie didn’t patent her designs, nor did she leave historical
information on her career, designs and alike, ascertaining additional
information regarding this fantastical piece may just have to continue to be a
