    I have no idea what possessed me to buy this, I guess it must have been the Deco style as well as the color. It's pretty large (1" x 2 1/4"), and a bit heavy. All the stones are there, and the design is cool. I'm thinking late 30's? There are no markings that I can find, and it appears to be Pot Metal. Still cool though!

      Thanks Sean and Moonstonelover! I didn't realize it was a classic when I got it!

      You are most welcome! The stones are called French cut and are one of my favourite cuts in stones :)

      You don't know what possessed you to buy this amazing brooch? Now hearing from us you have a hint. Very gorgeous old costume piece. Nothing today is as good quality - except for the very high-end costume makers.

      why are you unsure as to why you bought it? I dont think anyone could walk on
      Its beautiful. The style might be thirties but the colours strike me as earlier....
      However if I look at the clasp it makes me feel it could possibly be 50's. A lot of 50's designs were inspired by the art deco, art nouveau and Edwardian suggestion, do some good research. Your clasp is always the clue...the design can be old but rarely will they design the clasp from the same period....stunning though no matter when it was born....
      Thank you so much for sharing...

      Thanks Anne. I only said that because this is not normally the type of jewelry I get. I'll definitely research the clasp, and see what I come up with. Thanks for the info!

      Hey Anne, I took your advice. Here is a good page I found:
      You're right, it is probably 50's, but its still cool Hey, I'm in my 50's and i'm still cool!!!!
