DeNicola jewelry was founded by Jerry DeNicola in 1957 and produced fine quality, cutting edge designs during the 1950's and early 1960's. The company was acquired by Capri Jewelry during the last five years of its existence. Pieces signed 'DeNicola' have not been made since the early 1970's and are relatively scarce to find. Operations ceased altogether in 1973.
This somewhat triangular-shaped, stylized sun burst motif brooch has twisted, textured gold-tone flames shooting out from the center. Each flame holds a faux turquoise navette stone and the center holds a large round turquoise cabochon, surrounded by a row of small diamond rhinestones. The brooch measures 2 1/2" across with safety clasp mechanism. Stamped "DeNicola" with a copyright symbol within an oval cartouche. Near mint condition.
