Gorgeous Craft pin is a highly textured owl with red rhinestone eyes. The gold plate is rich, and alternates between a satin and nubby finish along the feathers.
This is a rare vintage piece designed by Gene Verrecchia who also designed high end pieces for Coro, KJL and many other Rhode Island jewelers in his day. The mark was sometimes Gem Craft, and, more rarely, it was the one on this pin which is Custom Craft. (Craft as a brand was eventually sold, but continued to design for Kenneth Jay Lane and Oscar de la Renta.)
The pin is 1.5” tall and 1” wide and signed on the back. There are a few tiny flea bites to the plate on some tips of the owl’s toes, but the pin is otherwise in excellent condition.
