If you appreciate vintage Floral Spray Brooches, then surely you are a fan of PENNINO!
Pennino is known for their absolutely stunning Floral Brooches. This one is NO exception!
Large, boosting a generous 3 1/2 Inches, made of rhodium and rose gold-plating, and featuring open-back, faceted oval glass Topaz stones, with a high-dome ruby glass cabochon in the center of the large flower. Off to the side is a cluster of small flowers consisting of topaz chaton rhinestones with crystal clear rhinestone centers. The design reminds me of a flower stem reaching for the sun, consisting of arched and curling fluted rose gold-plated bands with a pave encrusted shoot cinching the flower stem towards the base and sprouting out the top (or side, depends which way you pin it). Take note of the 3-Part construction utilizing screws. The main flower head is riveted and even has some movement - but not going anywhere!
A piece of art if you ask me. Pennino Floral Sprays are outstanding and make lovely additions to any collection, or a special gift.
