This is it for the day. Just this one little pin from Salvation for all my running around. It's marked Warner which I have to admit I was clueless about...but not anymore ! I don't know why but I don't think this looks so much like a Christmas tree that you couldn't wear it everyday depending on the orientation. Upside down I think it makes a perfectly elegant chandelier. The stones and the setting are clues that this is a quality piece. It's marked Warner on a plaque underneath the pin. It was also made in two sizes. A large one at 2 5/8" and this small one which measures 2". -Mike-
Joseph Warner Jewelry (1953 - 1971)

Warner was founded in 1953 and continued production until 1971. It was solely operated by Joseph Warner. This company produced top quality and distinctive jewelry using brilliant rhinestones and outstanding fruit, floral and insect designs. Jewelry marked Joseph Warner or Warner is very scarce and hard to find. Stones were individually set and chosen for their color balance and with a keen eye for composition. Many Warner pieces employed the distinctive black Japaning process.
Joseph Warner’s lovely rhinestone jewelry is solidly made and could remind one of other makers such as Karu, Weiss or Regency. Also of note are his “blooming” mechanical flower pins which open and close by moving a lever.
