This is a stunning and beautifully made vintage Retro period jeweled 14K Gold Rose Brooch. The Retro Flower Brooch has two prong mounted Rubies (Rose Buds) and a Diamond in the center of the open Rose. The Retro 14K Gold Rose Flower Brooch dates to circa: 1945 and is in beautiful, fine condition. We consider this Brooch to be in near Mint condition with a minute and normal surface scratches under high magnification. It's a strong piece and a good size, measuring 1 7/8 inches x 1 1/4 inches. Areas of textures add visual interest and realism to the piece. It can be worn in various directions on clothing, up, down, sideways. And if a jeweled 14K Gold Rose Flower Pendant were desired, a jeweler could easily convert the Brooch to a Pendant by adding to links to the open work design and add chain to the links on each side. The vintage Retro 14K Gold Rose Brooch is marked 14K in two places on the reverse, difficult to make out. and it's total approximate weight is 5 pennyweights (approximately 7.78 grams). The Brooch shows very well in the photos and just as beautiful in person. The photos were taken with and without a camera flash and the piece is picking up reflections while photographed.
