Three levels and three shades of blue rhinestones line this glorious tiered '60s vintage brooch in lustrous rhodium plate. At center a large emerald cut, marine blue rhinestone rests. It is framed with ice blue baguette rhinestones. The next step rises to a larger framework of complementing ice blue baguette rhinestones. The third, or top level is set with narrower, Bermuda blue, baguette rhinestones interspersed with like colored chaton rhinestones. Although it is difficult to gauge in the photos the dimension is superb with tiers rising to about 1/2 inch. Plating is in expensive rhodium -- a telltale indication, along with premium stones and construction, that the brooch is of better quality.
