There is a lovely rosy hue to the gold over sterling plating on this Coro Craft duette. The design was patented in 1943 by Adolph Katz, the legendary Coro designer. The fur clips can be worn separately or left on the frame to be worn as a brooch. The horses have black enamel features, pink rhinestone ears, aqua eyes, and baguettes and chaton rhinestones in their manes. Have a horse lover in your life? They’ll adore these!
