CORO Double Queens Crown Chatelaine Brooch Ruby Rhinestones Vintage Jewelry
This gorgeous piece has one piece with a large crown brooch and another with a smaller crown, with a dangle, the two attached with a fine chain. The chain was missing from the piece when I purchased it at an estate sale, and I have replaced it with one chain (about 5" long), whereas it may have originally had two, in order to function as a chatelaine. The smaller pin has a vertical fastener, rather than the horizontal ones frequently seen (this is original). All of the rhinestones sparkle brightly. I have researched the Coro patents in Costume Jewelry 202 but did not find this one, and I have also not found it in any of my other reference books, so I believe it is quite rare.
It will be shipped in a gift box.For information on Coro and other jewelry designers and companies, click here
