This brooch is in bad shape. There is one of the dangles missing, the center cabochon has a small chip, and the silver plating is almost gone. I rescued it because I think with a bit of TLC the brooch could come back to life.

I think that I could move the dangles around or possibly find a new one for the middle (or all new ones).
The little chip on the center cabochon is only visible upon close inspection.
After a really good cleaning, the missing silver plating might just give the brooch some character - LOL
To summarize: One day, when I am really bored, I will spend the time needed to bring the brooch back to its former glory (or at least closed to)

Thanks for looking:)

    Beautiful brooch!
    From pic#2 I can see there is only 4 holes for dangles, so thinking it doesn't lack any :-)
    For the silver plating, you may try a silver plating solution, as Newtimes used on her chrome deco bangle !
