This is a holiday brooch if I've ever seen one! Very stunning in person, you will certainly be noticed when you decorate yourself with this one.
Vendome is actually the top of the line for Coro Jewelry and it is obvious here. This well constructed piece contains beautiful topaz rivoli crystals, scalloped along the edges, and sparkling faceted glass beads that have a silvery coating across the tops of each. The center bead is larger as are the rivoli crystals larger than the ones along the edge.
An intricate construction, each piece is attached with pins and wired to the back with the rivoli pieces having glass tube spacers to hold them in place. The back of the brooch is a piece of art in itself as you will notice the filigree style design with the VENDOME stamp.
In excellent vintage condition, the brooch measures approximately 1 3/4" in diameter. You will have to look very hard to find only a couple of tiny chigger bite size chips on the rivoli pieces and one of the spacers on the backside split but not detached (see pic), this will certainly add sparkle to your collection.
