This is an inexpensive but elegant brooch with glass stones that sparkle like real sapphires! It's a fine fooler with top quality glass stones. The silver-plated brass mounting is 1 & 7/8" by 1/2" ~ a bar pin of sorts. This light blue color in sapphires is often called Ceylon blue to distinguish from the darker more saturated hues. It's in very fine condition notwithstanding its long life.
