Schreiner Juliana Pin Superb Clear Crystal Brooch 1950s Vintage Jewelry $85

Made in the 1950s, this designer clear crystal rhinestone brooch is superb quality. The most astonishing aspect of this brooch are the premium "diamond like" quality old world Austrian crystals. Their clarity and brilliance is spectacular! If you know the quality of old Eisenberg jewelry, this brooch uses crystals that match that quality. The design is very unique as well: an elegant ribbon or paisley shape with a marquise crystal accent on one end. The round focal crystals are rather large in size. The two largest crystals are 11 mm and have exquisite diamond like faceting. The brooch is made of thick silver rhodium metal and all of the crystals are prong set. Medium in size, this brooch is not over powering or ostentatious. It is 2" long x 1 1/4" tall or 51 mm x 32 mm. The brooch is not signed however the construction indicates it was made by either Schreiner or Delizza & Elster. The entire brooch is in pristine clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. There is no silver rhodium wear and all of the crystals are original, present, and sparkling clear. The back has the original fine working safety clasp.
