Magnificent two tiered brooch is of a gorgeous butterfly. Lots of open work between the stones and frame. The wings are set with prong set narrow navette and chatons rhinestones. The coloring of the stones is spectacular. No dull stones. Each and every stone is vivid in color. The eye is a red rhinestone.
Each wing is a framed with gold tone twisted rope effect.
What makes this different from most butterfly brooches is that the butterfly is seen in a flying position viewed from the side, rather than the usual fully opened wings as seen from the top. Also the body is deeply detailed. Antennae are curved and just add the final touch to this great Brooch.
Condition is fabulous. It shows the very, very, very minimalist signs of wear. Just view the photos. Looks even prettier in person.
Back is finished in gold tone, has loads of great puddling and the pin assembly is attached by a rivet. Pin works great.
Measures 2-3/4" x 2- 1/8". Brooch is very sturdy and weighs 22.1 grams.
