What a spectacular brooch this is, with deep purple, high quality amethysts and very fine detail in the foliage using both green and rose colored gold. Great care was taken in the making of this lovely American brooch.
The brooch measures 2 7/8" long and 1 1/8" wide and weighs a generous 12.6 grams. The amethysts measure 7 mm, 5.4 mm and 5.3 mm. The largest flower is 7/8" in diameter and the smaller one are 5/8" wide.
There is a very faint trademark on one petal that looks like a Krementz collar button, but it really too faint to be sure. This brooch is certainly equal to the quality and standards of that fine Newark, NJ company in its heyday.
Picture this perched most anywhere to liven up an outfit, evening bag or hat. Just the antidote for a dray midwinter day!
