Vintage Poinsettia Jewelry Set
|A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive|
Designed exclusively for the Smithsonian, this retro-elegant Vintage Poinsettia Jewelry is a luxe take on 50s-chic fashion jewelry. Though each piece features the same whimsical poinsettia bloom, the presentations are unique. The striking Collar Necklace with lobster clasp intersperses its seven poinsettia pendants with glittering crystals. The coordinating Stretch Bracelet alternates its eight poinsettias with crystal stations. Composed entirely of poinsettias, the exquisite openwork Tree Pin appears to emerge from a gleaming pot with crystal-accented rim. The single-blossom Pierced Earrings feature surgical steel posts. Rich enameling and crystal accents are refined by the gold-tone metal settings and necklace chain. Set includes a Necklace, Stretch Bracelet, Pierced Earrings, and Pin. Necklace, 17.5"l. with 3.25"l. extender; Stretch Bracelet, 7.75"; Pierced Earrings, 0.85" x 0.93"; Pin, 2.67" x 1.92".
Epitomizing festive sophistication, our gorgeous Vintage Poinsettia Jewelry is a lovely celebration of the hundreds of poinsettia plants grown each year by our Smithsonian Gardens’ Greenhouse Nursery Operations for holiday display in Smithsonian Museums. Also a favorite motif for holiday jewelry and apparel, its retro style recalls many examples of 50s-chic fashion jewelry in the costume collections of our National Museum of American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
