Silver and Crystal Necklace and Screw-on Earrings by ESPO
 
The sterling silver necklace has a centrepiece held by twist chain with a bolt-ring closure. The centrepiece is in three sections, one with an attached pendant. There are two small, roughly oval, sections, which flank the central section. The central section looks like a flower with two leaves and this section supports a pendant. The small ovals and the leaves are outlined with silver rims and are partially filled with coiled silver twist-wire, leaving some open-work. The twist-wire sections are decorated with silver beads. The centre of the leaf and flower is set with a round-cut, colourless crystal (4.8mm) and the pendant with a colourless, pear-shaped cut crystal (6.5mm x 3.9mm).
 
The sterling silver, screw-on earrings each have a roughly oval leaf shape with a round-cut, colourless crystal claw-set at the bottom of the leaf shape. The leaf shapes are each outlined with a silver rim and are partially filled with coiled silver twist-wire, leaving some open-work. The twist-wire sections are decorated with silver beads.
 
The necklace is marked “STERLING; ESPO”. ESPO is a trade-mark of Esposito Jewelry Inc. of Rhode Island, USA. Esposito was established in about 1915. The ESPO mark was first used around 1950. The earrings are marked “STERLING; STERLING” on the screws.
