I love specialty rhinestones - and this leaf pin uses them in a delightful design. Composed of a central pear-shaped unfoiled deep green faceted teardrop stone, surrounded by smaller faceted green navettes and larger green navettes that have been molded to resemble "cut" stones - all in a hand-soldered goldtone setting. Each navette features two diagonal slashes that give the brooch a wonderful texture. All stones are prong-set - the large teardrop has four prongs, as does each smaller navette . . . but the "cut" navettes have many prongs for each setting, providing a further interesting design element. The leaf stem sports three small green AB-coated chatons. The brooch is in very good condition - see pictures to view a possible pin back repair. There is an odd piece on the back soldered to the pear-shaped rhinestone frame . . . it doesn't appear to represent a missing piece, and does not show from the front.

The brooch is 2.5" long - and sports its original price tag from Kann's, a Washington, DC department store that went out of business for good in 1975. Given the design and the original price on the pin (97 cents!) I would peg this brooch to the late 1950s, or early 1960s, at the latest.
