At first look, I thought this was a Joseff of Hollywood brooch, with its Russian gold tone, unique shaped amber colored rhinestones and large size. I was surprised to find the Rifas signature because this Chicago designer's pieces are quite rare. He was in business in the 1960's and this must have been one of his finest examples. It is 3 3/4 inches long and 2 inches at its widest. The large faceted rhinestone are 1 1/4 inches each and are opened backed. This is a fabulous find in very good condition and will be super for wear or the collector.
