Very interesting design, wonderful brooch, in 10K GF; bit of oxidation on the "ball", right hand corner picture does show. Actually, this brooch can be worn any angle, rotate it to suit your fancy! From the fabulous 1950's.
Total dimensions of the brooch are 45 MM x 30 MM. The bottom half of the "smooth swirl" is shiny; the top half is granular finish. There is a 4.6 MM cultured pearl, pink cast, in center of the rope curlicue. Truly, different design.
It is in fine condition, and the pearl is secure and is not cracked or chipped.
Total shipping and insurance for this item will be total of $4.00 for all USA shipments.
