The rounded, designer quality brooch features four faux turquoise cabochons with rhinestone clusters in the center and four corners. That sounds so plain, but this brooch is actually uniquely gorgeous! You really have to look at the photos to appreciate it. The gold plated metal work that connects the rhinestone clusters is exquisite. All the tiny rhinestones, done in faux turquoise and medium blue, are prong set. The design extends over the sides, so it looks great from every angle. This is such a classy, vintage brooch - it caught my eye when I first saw it.
Measurements: The pin is approximately 1.5 inches tall and wide.
Condition: It is in excellent vintage condition. Please review all photographs carefully, as they are an essential part of the description.
Marks: This is a signed piece, but the marks are inconclusive. There is a V symbol that may be the 1970's (and later) hallmark for Valentino. The V is relatively clear and does look like the V hallmark Valentino used, but there should be an oval that extends from each side of the V and around to below it. That part of the hallmark has either faded away or it may not exist. Also, there is hand scratched marks on the crossbar - also hard to read. My best guess is NUSH, but I doubt that is quite right! It does not look professional, so could be an owner's name scratched on to it. One last note: this came from a high end consignment shop near Victoria, BC, so the maker may be a Canadian designer unknown in the US. The quality is clearly designer, and I wish I could attribute it with confidence.
