The great brooch has timeless characteristics! It is 2 in by 2 in, and is executed in gold tone metal, which has just a touch of japanning, to give it a gleam of black. The brooch is round, with a faux jade cabochon, which is 1 and 1/2 in diameter. The faux jade piece is dog tooth prong set.
Moving out concentrically from the faux jade stone, are three sets of loops, forming the rest of the circle. These are set like overlapping pieces of ribbon, which look braided, as per the incised pattern. The outermost circle is set with tiny, faux jade cabochons, which are prong set. There are six of these. The next inward circle, in like fashion, has six small, prong set faux , round, pearls. The faux beads are off set from each other. The rim/border of the piece is constructed of two interlocking loops of the "ribbon".
The reverse of the pin has a cross bar, with a hinged straight pin, that culminates in a rounded, safety clasp. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition, coming to you from the 1940's-1950's. Wear this one on your twin set and you are ready to go!
