Striking Vintage Amethyst & Blue Aurora Rhinestone Pinwheel Brooch that can be seen from across the room. The center & focal point of this beauty is a Rivoli Art Glass Stone reflecting prisms of varying shades of purple color along with unique faceting.
The pinwheel design is open-worked for the light to pass through & around the stones, which allows for ultimate illumination and reflection. This radiating vintage pinwheel brooch spins with luscious amethyst navettes and blue aurora borealis rhinestones for an eye-catching contrast.
Definition of “Rivoli”: a type of multi-faceted foiled art glass stone manufactured by Swarovski; first used in costume jewelry in the 1950s; the name refers to the shape of a round stone with a pointed top.
Each stone is prong set around the perimeter in non-tarnishing rhodium metal.
The pin clasp is in perfect working condition.
Judging from the excellent condition of this brooch I believe it was probably tucked away for a long time in a jewelry drawer.
The pinwheel design is fascinating because of all its different angles & dimension giving it movement and wonderful light capturing characteristics. This brooch would make an exceptional gift because of its intrinsic beauty, craftsmanship, color and like-new condition.
Measurements: 1 7/8” x 1 7/8”.
