So incredibly rare to find a complete Arts & Crafts parure let alone one by the highly collectible maker ‘Zoltan White & Co’.

This complete suite consists of a ring, a pair of earrings, brooch, bracelet and the most astounding necklace with detachable pendant.

Each piece is modelled from Sterling Silver and set with cabochon rock crystal / chalcedony each of which displays a perfect ‘asterism’ resembling, in fact superseding the star asterism phenomona only seen in only the best star sapphires.
Exquisite in its execution the attention to detail is fabulous.  Ornate foliate motifs adorn the settings and the verso of each piece is as fabulous as the front. 

Safety chains accompany both the bracelet and the necklace component for added security and are a sign of quality.

In total there are 42 magnificent star cabochons, all centred perfectly so the asterism is perfect aligned … the attention to detail and the craftmanship required is breathtaking.

This suite exemplifies the Arts & Crafts era and truly would be at home in the serious collectors collection, in fact perhaps in a museum.
