Rhinestone Brooch / Mid Century / Aurora Borealis

$139.30 $199.00

ITEM # 121619 (B-37)

Vintage unsigned ruby red glass rhinestone brooch with aurora borealis accent stones. Characteristics suggest late 50's early 60's. The prongs suggest possibly Schiaparelli. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Brooch consists of a large center round faceted red glass rhinestone with AB finish, there are 5 ruby red glass faceted baguettes, 2 more large ruby red glass faceted rounds, 4 medium ruby red glass faceted rounds, 1 medium ruby red glass faceted round with AB finish, 2 smaller ruby red glass faceted rounds one having AB, and there are 6 ruby red glass faceted navettes. Total rhinestones = 21.

Rhinestones are all sawtooth prong set except the baguettes, which have the claw like prongs you typically see on Juliana pieces. The setting is a pewter color metal and there is a swirling metal pattern along with leaves. The back is closed except for the navettes, which are open.

Very good vintage condition with typical wear due to age and handling. The aurora borealis finish looks very good with minimal wear only seen upon very close inspection or looping. One of the baguettes has a "pit" on the top, which appears to have occured in the manufacturing process.

Brooch is in a swirling dimentional pattern and measures approx 2 7/8" in length and 1 7/8" wide.

I was unable to locate a manufacturer, but this piece has the look, feel and weight of an exceptional statement beauty piece.
