Demi Parure set by Bergere Jewelry.  This company was only in business from  1946-57.  You don’t find a lot of this around, for such a limited production.  

Beautiful brooch and earrings with gold tones embellished with rhinestones and orange baubles.  Very vivid colors and in great condition with no missing stones.  The earrings are signed, but the brooch isn’t.  

The brooch measures a little over 3″ in diameter.  The filigree in the metal gives it a nice touch of victorian days, but the orange is defiantly a mid-century color!  The earrings are clip style and measures a bit over 1″ in diameter.
