Ripe Berries Leaf Motif Gold Tone Enamel and Rhinestone Monet Brooch
What a delicious and pretty brooch by Monet. There are 17 large faceted navette rhinestones in ripe cranberry red and raspberry pink one on each leaf and 17 lavender little rhinestones running up the middle of the large curved brooch shaped like a branch with leaves or fronds. Fabulous cloisonné enameling in variegated tones of raspberry, yellow orange and gold accents each leaf inside raised goldtone veins. The setting is gold tone and stamped MONET on the back. The wonderful large brooch measures 3 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. There is a swing arm c clasp and pin that works fine. Excellent condition. All of the rhinestones are in place and secure. No visible chipping to the enamel. All of the colors are rich and deep and I personally love the combination. A rich looking beautiful piece of vintage costume jewelry.
