After scrubbing each piece with a toothbrush and toothpaste (the best way to clean costume jewelry) various inscriptions on the back of some became legible. Some say "Austria" "Holly..." "1957" And most of them are real crystal.
Mum was given this (and more that have been lost over the years) By an old time film star who lived in the apartment next to mum when mum lived in Brentwood / Hollywood.
When the lady passed away, mum was given her jewelry.
I'm wearing the pieces for a photo shoot I have on sunday (which is also my 17th birthday)
Photos all by me
