When Hollywood stars wanted elegant jewelry with the Real Look they didn't always reach for diamonds.
They sought out the most tasteful costume jewelry and discovered this new look of genuine gemstone jewelry that gave the appearance of precious jewelry but at costume jewelry prices.
Once she came across a brooch that she loved more than almost any other. But she had no idea who had made it.
Who would put genuine gemstones with such care in a goldplatedbasemetal setting?
No signature told the story either. Various experts pronounced the brooch "perhaps Chinese" but she didn't think so. The cast was definitely not Asian in origin.
A mystery no longer: This brooch was made by Swoboda, of Los Angeles, California, USA. And so were so many other fine costume jewelry pieces although the maker was not as well known on the East Coast as on the West.
