White Cabochon Green Rhinestone Eyes Seed Pearls De Nicola Turtle Brooch
Here’s a great vintage turtle or terrapin brooch designed and signed De Nicola. His intricate gold tone frame is embellished head to tail and toes with tiny simulated seed pearls and he has a large white oval stone for the shell. Sparkling green rhinestones for eyes. Secure rolling C clasp on back and signed De Nicola © in center. Measures 1 ¾” x 1 1/4”. Excellent condition, no flaws I can find. Fun figural brooch for a terrapin or turtle fan. De Nicola Jewelry was in business from 1957 to the early 1970's. They produced high quality jewelry and had several lines. Eventually in 1970, De Nicola became part of Capri Jewelry.
