Moonglow lucite was made into earrings, bangle bracelets, beads, buttons, and man-made cabochons that were set into earrings and brooches. Moonglow came in many colors ranging from bright sunshine yellows, bold blues, radiant reds, soft pastels to deep emerald greens. Although moonglow was primarily fashionable during the 40s and 50s, it continued to be used in jewelry until the 1960s.
Moonglow is comprised of acrylic resin and of heat-set plastic. This process was called "thermosetting." Unlike today's contemporary plastics that feel hollow and insubstantial, vintage lucite, especially moonglow, has a nice weight to it. It feels strong and cool against the skin. This would make a lovely addition to your jewelry collection or for dressing up a casual outfit, a special occasion, or the holidays.
I have acquired various collections which have included some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Lane, Philippe for Trifari, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Coro, Coventry, Kramer, Krementz, Lisner, and Trifari.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
There are additional antique and vintage necklaces, brooches, and earrings in the Designer, Necklaces, Pendant, Earrings, as well as the Bakelite, Lucite, and Other Plastics Studio Categories.
There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.
