This lovely brooch is a recent estate acquisition. It is a very large two-dimensional brooch with bottom featuring large and small round Topaz rhinestones. The top tier features sparkling blue Aurora Borealis rhinestones in rosette patterns. The blue picks up the Topaz and makes a lovely combination.
This D&E Juliana brooch has the exceptional construction with figure eight soldering, puddling of solder and unique design. It is not without issues. The pin back has been re-soldered and not by a professional as evident. It is working, however, and the pin is slightly bent. It also appears that maybe one or two of the tiny Topaz rhinestones have been replaced. All this taken into consideration, this is still an elegant brooch that will fit right into your Fall wardrobe lineup. I have also taken these issues into consideration in the price.
It is 2 1/4" wide with a 3/4" rise............a stand-out piece!
