Where is Sherlock Holmes when you need him? We have a bit of a mystery here.
This beautiful vintage jeweled pin / pendant is without a doubt by Marena of Germany. We've had quite a few of them over the years and recognize the unmistakable design and quality components. It's Marena. But the back of the pin is handsigned in script (looks like) ~ ELAINE ~. Just ELAINE. Did Elaine work for Marena and want all the credit for herself? Did she leave Marena and continue to make the jewelry under her own name? Is/was there an Elaine Marena? We'll probably never know.
This Marena pin signed by Elaine is set with an oval opalescent moonstone at center. Small seed pearls and glittering aurora borealis stones accent the detailed raised leaves. The frame and setting is 18kt gold plated. The finishing touch is a drape of gilded chain dangles.
The pin measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 inches long with the chains. The back has both a secure rollover clasp and the attached bail for a chain.
Excellent vintage condition. Marena jewelry was handmade in Germany, mostly when it was still West Germany.
