If proportion is paramount then this large, vintage Parakeet or Budgie brooch with rhinestones and a teardrop shaped faux pearl is bound to be a hit. Crafted in the 1940s or early 1950s the pin measures a whopping 3 5/8 inches in length and 2.25 inches in width and has a gold tone base with a wash of white on the front that really brings out its texture and allows the multicolored rhinestones to sparkle and shine. It is made of a metal that is heavier than that of more contemporary pins and although quite old the gold is still in very good condition with just a touch of tarnishing. Unmarked with a roll clasp on the back, this brilliant Budgie would really pop on a purse or kill it on a coat. You will love it!
