setting where one glass cabochon is sitting.

particularly well made piece of vintage costume jewelry and you
can't find a mark, you never know! Some items can be
attributed by the way they are constructed or by the

find your item in a costume jewelry book or magazine ad.
Investing in several costume jewelry books will pay off in
the long run.

and Elster. If you have a pair of earrings or a
brooch that is a match for one of their bracelets you
can safely attribute the item to D&E.
