If you think you can't wear large jewelry you can wear this beautiful pin. It is large but the way it is made it has such a graceful look and it is not overwhelming at all. The pin is sterling silver with a gold vermeil overlay. It has large ruby red rhinestones and smaller diamante stones set in the shape of a flower. There is a charming bow in the center. This dates from the 1940's so there is some wear to the gold vermeil especially on the bow. With a little more cleaning all of it will be polished away on the bow and you will have a combination look of sterling and the gold vermeil. It is marked Sterling on the back behind the pin stem. Pin is 3 1/2" long and 2" wide. There is light tarnish along a couple of the stems. I have not tried to clean it but I prefer to leave it as it is. Considering its age this brooch is in excellent condition. I have priced it according to its minor imperfections.
