Recently I bought a lot of jewelry from a lady here in town to resale in my antique mall booths and in my Etsy shop. I knew when I bought it that the jewelry was good…there were lots of Weiss pieces in the lot.
When I saw the bracelet and earrings in the pictures, I didn’t realize how special they were until I researched the designer. This set is by Elsa Schiaparelli, an Italian born designer who moved to Paris and became a rival of Coco Channel.
I recently listed this set in my Etsy shop, and was very pleasantly surprised when they sold this weekend!

I have really enjoyed learning about her life, and finding her jewelry on Ebay, Ruby Lane, Esty and other sites that list vintage jewelry. I have one more bracelet by this designer, and I think I’ll keep it!
Thank you for visiting!
