You know his work best, perhaps, from the hit series "Dynasty" in the '80s. Glamour was de rigueur and Nolan Miller left no rhinestone unturned. While we loved and hated the Carringtons, we adored their gowns and glitter. Nolan Miller's star rose to astronomical heights -- his status as couturier to the chosen few, secure.

The vintage floral and foliage brooch presented, circa 1980s, features a hovering butterfly, enjoying the fruits of his labor. Clear round brilliant rhinestones are set strategically throughout the gold tone brooch -- within bulbs, lining leaves and peaking out of blossoms at top. The full wing spanned butterfly contrasts in silver tone, set with marine blue and peridot green chaton rhinestones. A clear marquise rhinestone glitters at center. Full of life and levity, Miller's brooch garners the attention intended -- a signature feature of this designer's work.

The brooch measures an impressive, approximate 3 5/8 inches x 1 3/4 inches at it's widest with a 3/8 inch profile. Butterfly's marquise rhinestone is about 11 millimeters x 5 millimeters. Largest flower blossom chaton rhinestones is approximately 5 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is about 44 grams.

Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All rhinestones intact. "White" rhinestone uniformly clear and brilliant. Colored stones retain shades and sparkle. No cloudy or dead stones. No damaged stones. All gold tone and silver tone finishes intact, front and back. No dents or improper bends. Pin mechanism strong and secure with straight shaft. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Pristine vintage.

Reverse of the brooch is signed within an oval cartouche: "NOLAN MILLER" copyright symbol preceding. It dates to circa 1980s. Mr. Miller died in 2012.

The show goes on. Be ready to spread your wings -- brilliantly and beautifully with Nolan Miller. At Cody's.
