What a totally fun piece that can be worn as a pin or a pendant. Circa 1960's by the Marcel Boucher company which was one of the premier American jewelry manufacturers in business from 1937-1971/72.
This three dimensional pin is signed BOUCHER © 8190 NK on the back. I am not absolutely certain that the 1 is a 1 and that the last letter is a K, but I looked at the signature a lot, and I think I have reported it correctly. The letters after the numbers indicated whether it was a P(in) or E(arrings), so I think the NK refers to Necklace.
Anyway, this is a really show stopping piece with a large piece of imitation jade glass with 4 little red rhinestone flowers. The modernist leaves are brushed gold-tone metal. This piece actually, to my mind, has an ocean feel because the gold-tone metal design undulates and is multi-dimensional. The piece has a pin back and also a brushed gold-tone detachable bail so it can be worn as a very striking pendant. I have included photos with and without the bail.
I have included a lovely flexible "gas pipe" chain which was not original.
Condition: Very Good, clasp works securely
Size: 3" long by 1 ¾" wide; bail ½" long
