Weiss Crystal Clear Rhinestone Brooch Teardrop Chaton Three Section Large, luscious, lavish and lovely brooch is just ablaze with radiance.
Rhinestones in shapes of teardrop, or pear shape, and chatons in many sizes are the components in this va va voom brooch by Weiss.
Measures 2" with a rise of 1/2" measures while laying flat on my desk,
Three sections – I thought that each section was identical in design to each other. But as I am writing this, and looking at the piece, I have discovered that the design, although similar in each section, is different from each other.
All sections have the same stone cuts. All center chatons are the same size. One section has three teardrop rhinestones flanked by chatons in 2 sizes; another section has four teardrop stones with one large chaton and one smaller chaton on either end. And a wee chaton mounted below an arch directly on top of the large center chaton rhinestone.
Third section has two teardrop rhinestones, a smaller chaton and a larger chaton.
Each section has an elevated swirl or arch with pave rhinestones in graduated sizes. All stones are prong set, except for the teeny ones in the curved swirl. These stones have a slight champagne or very,very light jonquil color. Very lovely and adds a slight contrast and emphasis to the brooch.
Mesmerizing radiance issues forth from each and every stone in this impeccably stunning brooch.
All stones have plenty of life and loads of sparkle.
