Faux Gemstone Brooch Seed Pearls Openwork Carnelian Lapis Vintage Jewelry
• Materials: faux gemstones, goldtone metal
• Maker: unknown
• Approximate Year: c1970s
• Size: 2" x 1-3/4"
This brooch reminds me a bit of Goldette jewelry, with the small faux gemstones, seed pearls and antiqued metal, though I don't believe it was made by them. This one has a large faux carnelian cabochon in the center, then a miscellaneous assortment of gemstones, and on the outer edge small seed pearls. The red ruby at the bottom of the pin is diamond shaped, rather than being a cabochon like the others, so I believe someone replaced the original at some time. It actually fits in quite well, however. The pin measures 2" x 1-3/4" and other than the replacement stone, is in very good vintage condition.
It will be shipped in a gift box.
