Cascading crystal rhinestone chains in groups of four overlap each other at the very center of this magnificent, extremely high quality crescent wreath brooch. This creates a style reminiscent of a flowing waterfall.
Crescent wreath is composed of radiant pave set crystal ice teardrop rhinestones angled and rising upward, almost like a stylized leaf or an angel’s wings. In the center of each wing, are three tiny chaton stones. These seem almost invisible to the naked eye, but add so much sparkle and dazzle, and eliminate any spaces between the teardrops. Freely swinging chains of chaton rhinestones are tipped with a teardrop rhinestone. All stones in the entire pin are prong set. This is a very high end unsigned piece. The design, workmanship and quality are superior. I tried so hard to capture its beauty, but I could not get the photos to show this piece in all its glory. In person it is on phenomenal, gorgeous brooch. Each and every rhinestone matches perfectly in size and brilliance. Back is rhodium plated.
This has all the attributes of being made by Delizza and Elster – back puddling, design and the pin assembly construction. I believe this to have been made by Delizza and Elster. Measures 3-3/8” in length. Top section is 1-3/4” wide.
