Vintage Austrian Hot Pink Crystal Rhinestone Pin w/ Big Pearl DropVintage Austrian Hot Pink Crystal Rhinestone Pin w/ Big Pearl DropVintage Austrian Hot Pink Crystal Rhinestone Pin w/ Big Pearl DropVintage Austrian Hot Pink Crystal Rhinestone Pin w/ Big Pearl Drop

Thanks to Daniel Swarovski who invented the modern rhinestone, Austria has an enduring place in costume jewelry history. The 19th century glass cutter and jeweler moved his company from Bohemia (now known as the Czech Republic) to Austria in the late 1800s and turned that country into a leading source for the finest and most brilliant rhinestones available.

All the top 20th century costume jewelers in the U.S. and around the world used Austrian crystals. One look at this hot pink crystal Austrian pin confirms why their stones were so popular. The fiery pink crystal leaves are set in multi-prong settings with pave clear baguettes lining the branches. A big faux pearl teardrop dangles from the branch.

The pin measures 2 inches across by 2 1/8 inches high. The goldtone setting is still bright. The back is marked AUSTRIA. The pin is in excellent condition with a secure rollover clasp. Circa 1940s.
