Huge blue and green rhinestone brooch with dramatic construction, from the 1960s; unmarked but clearly a Regency piece. This is a very large and showy brooch. It measures: 3-1/2 inches X 2-1/2 inches.
This brooch features a huge domed cluster of magnificent stones at the top. This section arches in dramatic 3-D. It drips with dangling glamour. Lots of movement.
The bottom has a five part fringe of dangling stones. These are very fluid. I've pictured it with a quarter for size perspective. The brooch makes the coin look like a dime! It absolutely fills my hand.
The colors are emerald green, true blue, deep sapphire blue, baby blue and crystal with a flashing blue, Aurora Borealis wash. There is a myriad of shapes and sizes. Stone shapes are emerald, tear drop, princess, and navette. There are at least seven different sizes! All stones are prong set in silver tone metal.
The silver tone metal must be rhodium plated. It has not tarnished in the 50 years of it's life. I date it to about 1964 and attribute it to REGENCY. (thank you to all my Ruby Lane friends for their input!)
The dangles are dramatic and the colors are delicious! This brooch will turn some heads. MINOR wear to some of the Aurora wash and the very, very tips of the navettes are darkened on some of the stones. The rotating knuckle clasp is strong and works perfectly.
