Four oval cabochon cats eye glass stones are swirled and twirled amidst lovely pink rhinestones in graduated sizes in this multi-tiered piece of opulent jewelry. Cats eye stones show much depth and many colors and intensities. This brooch reminds me of ‘follow the yellow brick road’ from the Wizard of Oz..
Starting at the bottom is a thick beveled gold tone border. Bevel is at the very outside edge and turned under giving needed support while adding a beautiful look to the piece. . Graduated sizes of scintillating pink faceted rhinestones are accented with two tiny red rhinestones. A couple of same size cats eye glass stones also make an appearance. Between these two gorgeous stones is a lovely large pink rhinestone.
Another level- another beveled border encasing pink stones with a couple of deep ruby red small rhinestones and yet another cats eye in the center. Proceeding up this winding road of beveled golden border are small pink rhinestones fully encircling the very top cats eye stone. At the very top is the cherry on the cake - another cats eye stone.
There are three different sizes of cats eye stones ranging from about 11mm to 13mm. The largest rhinestone also is approximately 13mm.
The photo of the back shows more detail of the border and nice figure eight puddling.
