The bracelet measures 18cm in length, with its central panel 6cm x 6cm. The earrings are 4cm x 2cm. 

A Short History...

This set was made in Italy during the 1960s. This is because Italian mid-centrury jewellery design is typified by elaborate beadwork pieces. Accessory designers from the country, such as the famed Coppola e Toppo, specialised in ornate and statement glass bead jewels similar to this set.
