Fabulous and very rare large rhinestone brooch signed Schaparelli. It features brilliant round and teardrop rhinestones prong set in dark silver tone metal, very sparkly, with center un-foiled crystal teardrop. We love all the dangles, which dance as you move! This elegant brooch measures 4" long and 2 & 3/4" wide. It is in good condition with mild wear from age, we see no damage or repairs. Signed on the back. Now here is the issue. The correct spelling should be Schiaparelli. It is obviously mis-spelled on the incised signature. Yet it has all the quality and design of a Schiaparelli piece, and we acquired this from a collector who collected this designer and also Haskell and really knew her jewelry. So I have priced this at half of what it should be due to the mark. I could not find anything on the internet using the wrong spelling either.
