The stone we will talk first is a black pear shaped stone that was molded with inset flowers and leaves. Those were hand painted in bright blue and red for the flowers and green for the leaves. This stone measures approx. 18 x 13 mm. This stone design is extremely rare in D&E Jewelry. I have only seen a handful of these designs.
I have seen two different uses of this stone in D&E jewelry. However there may be more styles using them and they are just not identified yet.
The first is the huge earrings done with the gorgeous painted pears along with blue and red oval plastic cabochons and small round jade glass cabochons. The metal on this design is gold toned. These earrings are almost 4 inches long.
The second is the black pear stones accented with orange, blue and olivine green rhinestones. The metal on this design is darkened gun metal in color.
I have seen this design in the oval wreath shaped brooch. The pendant necklace with the mesh chain, the dangle earrings and button earrings.
