What a wonderful find! Vintage brooches are back in style! Open any recent issue of women's fashion magazines and you will find that knock-offs are being designed at outrageous prices. This brooch is a great example of beautiful genuine vintage quality and design!
It starts with a very large and impressive size (over 3" wide) highly detailed branch and leaf base made of ornately designed brass. The pin back with safety closure is in good working order as well. Even the back of the piece has been finished with ornate detailing.
With the leaves, flower and brass finishings it is organic in feel - The unfurling leaves in various stages of design, some are flat, other having slightly curled edges..all having intricate detailed veining. Layered with large petals of spectacular and sparkling clear rhinestones (with exception to one small stone) the stones are all brilliant and full of sparkle. The uppermost section is an unfolding floral/rose with a center single sparkling rhinestone.
This is not a flat piece - measuring from the pin back up it is a full 3/4" high including the wired on rose section making for a showy piece.
With exception to the above mentioned this wonderful vintage brooch has remained in Excellent Vintage Condition.
Feminine with nice floral detail and brilliant sparkle!
