This simple, yet eye-catching brooch consists of a wide, 3-dimensional, gold-tone frame which holds a huge dome-shaped, deep amber, glass cabochon on the top. The ribbed gold-tone frame gives the illusion of golden rays radiating from the center stone. The brooch measures 2 1/4" across with safety clasp mechanism. The piece is stamped in the metal "Trifari" with a crown above the T and a copyright symbol. Would look stunning on a jacket or coat. Near mint condition.
