DESCRIPTION: Personally, there are days when I wear a favorite brooch with jeans and a shirt or sweater, and always receive a compliment. Whether I select a costume or fine jewelry piece, the simple addition of a brooch to an outfit is what being a tastemaker is all about. This favorite fashion accessory is one you won’t see every day and when you do, it’s most often in the office or at an evening event. Adding a brooch to your most casual outfits, whether to run errands or while on vacation, is a fashion statement to be noticed!
This vintage Gem-Craft brooch, crafted of brushed goldtone metal, features gold rhinestones set inside black enamel indentions. From a distance, the brooch resembles an animal print and up close, has much detail. The design is moderne with a square shape and freeform elements.
Gem-Craft was founded in 1945 in Cranston, RI, by Gene & Alfeo Verrecchio as a producer of quality costume jewelry under its own brand ‘Craft’ and for designers Oscar de la Renta, Kenneth Jay Lane and Coro.
WHY I LIKE IT: The design is very substantial and interesting with gold sparkling rhinestones and brushed metal.
DIMENSIONS: 1-5/8” square
CONDITION: Excellent to Very Good.
