Aquamarine Crystal Pin Givre Flower Brooch Vintage 1950s Jewelry $85


It is easy to appreciate this 1950s vintage large flower pin just by gazing at the incredible flower petals!

This overlapping flower design is made of a unique combination of crystals and rhinestones in refreshing Aqua colors. The marquise glass flower petals are set on upright angles. The faces of the cabs are smooth and the backs are melon ribbed. The flashing iridescent colors are aqua, light green, golden yellow, and clear.

The rest of the brooch has crystals and rhinestones complimentary to the petals. The stems are light peridot chatons, the leaves are emerald crystal navettes, and the flower centers are yellow Citrine chatons. All of the rhinestones and crystals are prong set in gold plated metal.

Although the brooch is not signed, if you look at the back, the construction is indicative of Schiaparelli or Vendome. This brooch is in fabulous pristine condition and is perfect all around. The brooch is a large design at 3" tall x 1 3/4" wide and is a weighty, solid made work of art. You can get a better indication of size by looking at the photo of the brooch in my hand.

You can add a gold brooch slider to convert this pin to a pendant by checking the box below. Sliders come with a pair of silicon stoppers to hold slider in place.
