A Jewelry That Talks To You And Touches Your Heart…..
From my personal collection- I purchased this very sentimental and magnificent brooch during a Mother’s Day, in memory of my late mother. It reminded me of an event from my childhood while spending a quiet time with her during a summer vacation in a beautiful countryside. It touched my heart.
In her own, inimitable way, Joan Rivers created her own visual and artistic interpretation of a mother’s love. The idyllic scene depicted on the cameo, brings out the serenity of the moment and the bond between the woman and her child. Sitting under a tree, they seem to be talking quietly; the mother completely absorbed in the conversation, the child -- listening to her while playing with the undergrowth. The image is artistically bound and molded on a brick-red matte heavy epoxy and adds weight to the brooch.
The cameo, reminiscent of the Renaissance Revival style, is set in a gold plated metal base and is framed by two raised gold tone rings paved with prong set tiny sparkling Swarovski crystals. The rings are separated by a stripe of a winter green epoxy enameled metal. Upon a closer examination (please see the enlarged detail photo of the brooch) the design around the cameo looks like a detailed micro mosaic. The original and fanciful frame is topped with a flower and leaves laurel, all encrusted with clear crystals. The metal base is textured in a flower design and has an engraved flower shape surrounding the Joan Rivers cartouche signature. It is a spectacular and a very unusual jewelry and quite uncommon. Moreover, It is worth noting that since her passing, Joan Rivers vintage jewelry had dramatically risen in price and collectability.

About Joan Rivers: Much has been written about the late Joan Rivers’ lifer story and her contributions to the fashion jewelry world. In addition to her career as a comedienne, an actress and a TV host, hers is a story of a life-long fine jewelry collector who had translated her passion for and her collection of beautiful and unique jewelry into establishing her own brand of a high end fashion accessories. Endowed with an impeccable taste and a sense of style, she had revived and interpreted the famous American designers of the last century and had created a timeless and contemporary brand of gorgeous and unique line of costume jewelry. My own knowledge of this field had been much enhanced by collecting her jewelry and by delving into the history of American fashion jewelry designers of yesteryear.
