Along with powerhouses Trifari, Coro and Kramer, Weiss took it's place as one of the dominating players in the costume jewelry empire of the 20th century. Although myriad companies were involved in the production, many sources consider these four major game changers in the shift from fine to faux.

The shooting or falling star brooch presented, circa 1940s'1950s, includes one the the less seen marks "Albert Weiss New York". Beautifully plated in lustrous rhodium, the brooch features a trio of brilliant shooting stars. Some say they symbolize good luck and protection. Weiss interprets the amazing arced trio in a sparking display of layered pear and chaton clear rhinestones, each star graduating in size. Stars are riveted in place on a luxurious, platinum toned reverse.

The brooch measures approximately 2 5/8 inches x 1 1/4 inches at it's widest point with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Largest pears are about 12 millimeters x 7 millimeters and smallest pears, 6 millimeters x 3 millimeters. Chaton rhinestones are 4, 5, and 6 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is 14.8 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and uniformly clear and brilliant. No dark, cloudy or dead stones. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks to stones. No dents or improper bends to metal components. All soldering and riveting secure. Rhodium plate intact, front and back. Pin mechanism secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Reverse of brooch is signed: "ALBERT WEISS" underscored with "NEW YORK". Circa 19940s-1950s.
