Dior. A name synonymous with...well...Dior. A name without equal. Known worldwide in fashion circles and in any circle for that matter, Christian Dior has been making headlines since the conception of his "New Look" in the late '40s. High quality costume jewelry was always part of the fashion statement and Dior was said to have personally designed the jewelry until his death in 1957. The House of Dior survives and flourishes.
The '80s - early '90s vintage gold tone rose flower blossom brooch presented features tiny clear crystal rhinestones embedded throughout in the layered petals of the blossom. A trio of veined and striated leaves juts from a textured stem. Detail and dimension sprinkled with sparkle abound in Dior's tribute to the rose.
The brooch measures approximately 2 3/8 inches x 1 5/8 inches at it's widest point with a maximum profile or height of 3/8 inches. Weight of the brooch is about 28 grams.
