Wow! What truly spectacular demi parure set by the renowned Sigi Tasco. This 4 piece set made of sterling silver that details clean, modernist lines and enamel accents.  The enamel is clean and damage free on all 4 pieces. Both the necklace and the bracelet feature a center hinge and hidden box closures which work perfectly, and the bracelet also has a safety latch. The earrings are a combination of clip and screw back style and are fully functional. The real showcase of each piece though is the 3-dimensional Orbs that feature Tiger's Eye on one side and Labradorite on the flip side. The are set in a sterling frame that rotates on a pin setting. All the orbs and pin settings are in perfect working order. I gave the set a light cleaning but it still has some patina. Positively breathtaking and a rare to find a complete matching numbers set of this magnitude! Will be delivered in a full size display gift box.  

Mannequin is a life size representation

**Special Note** Please carefully review the measurements, which I have painstakingly detailed. Might be considered as slightly smaller than an average set because of it's age.**
