This saphiret brooch is stunningly beautiful. It boasts a huge faceted saphiret stone in its center which forms the focal point of this astonishing piece. The stone is open backed which allows light to shine through imparting clarity and an ethereal glow. Three oval cabochons surround the center stone and the remainder of the piece is covered in clear sparkling rhinestones. Five strands of highly faceted crystals dangle from the brooch, providing additional sparkle and dimension. The large size and unique design of this piece make it a necessity for those who collect saphiret pieces.
The brooch measures 4-1/4 inches in height (including the dangles) and 2-1/2 inches in width. It is in very good vintage condition, with all the stones present but with many of the small clear rhinestones exhibiting graying. The main saphiret stone a small flea bit on one of the edges and some minor scratches on its surface. The piece is weighty and substantial and absolutely stunning.
