Butterfly Pin Vintage 1950s Delizza Elster Juliana Pink Crystal Brooch $110

Butterfly Pin Vintage 1950s Delizza Elster Juliana Pink Crystal Brooch


The building at 611 Broadway St. NY is a very famous landmark. It was the home of Delizza and Elster Jewelry Co. in the 1950s. Sadly, it is now home to a Crate & Barrel.

D&E was a completely family run business, a very large family, and Im sure there were times when Frank Delizza wanted to run out into the middle of Broadway screaming and pulling his hair out. There were a lot of women in his family who worked at the company and they knew what women wanted: the most enchanting butterfly brooches the world has ever seen. They went to Frank over and over so many times to get their butterfly designs approved.... it must have made his head spin.

Their persistence paid off, as demonstrated by this butterfly brooch, which in my opinion is the most sensational pink butterfly brooch ever made by D&E.

This majestic butterfly exudes and air of regal jewels, combining deep ruby red crystals with dazzling rose pink crystals. The brooch is made of gold plated metal and all of the crystals are prong set. These premium Austrian crystals have an electric glowing life source of their own; their sparkle and brilliance is enchanting. In addition, superb brilliance is also achieved in this design as all of the crystals are very tightly set together, and reflect light off each other.

Medium large in size, the brooch is 2 1/16" wide x 1 3/4" tall or 52 mm x 45 mm. The brooch is in superb pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the crystals are original and present with no scratches, chips, cracks, or cloudiness. There is no gold metal wear or loss of gold. The back has the original fine working safety clasp and the brooch is not signed.

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.

This brooch can also be worn as a pendant with the addition of a silver metal brooch slider which you can add below.
