Vintage Jerry De Nicola ornate and regal shield brooch done in the style of a Georgian era banner carried before royalty, encrusted with faux seed pearls and 'diamond' look rhinestones is being offered for consideration. This is from his 1950's the "The Real Look Collection" and it is in excellent vintage condition.
Jerry De Nicola started his early line of costume jewelry in 1957, called "The Real Look", consisting of pieces resembling fine jewelry. His jewelry was often whimsical, detailed and unusual; almost always thoughtfully designed and well made. Sadly all production of it had ceased by 1970. It never was plentiful in the market place, due to limited production, and finding a piece by this wonderful designer is always cause for a celebration here!
Castles, crowns, ferns, columns and more appear on this brooch to be encrusted with rhinestones and faux seed pearls from the amazing imagination of designer Jerry De Nicola! The brooch measures 1 3/4 inches by 1 5/8 inches and is an intricate visual pleasure. This displays desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion detracts from its stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the piece, they will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their vintage previous 50 to 80 beautiful years of life. Your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome. Certainly an addition to your accessories collection that you will reach for often to add that perfect TOUCH! (K5668)
