    Good Evening CW Friends Collector----8:30PM)2016-12-23
    I found today at my local thrift shop this nice little vintage sterling silver beetle brooch, stamp under "925" and "vivah", i discover this is from the 1970-80 manufactured by Vivah Jewellery Canada.
    In very good vintage condition, no damage, just a little tarnish and this give a nice look, I am not sure what kind of stone for the body, any help ID this stone will be much appreciated.
    To be honest, i was thinking this brooch was way much older, but that's fine.

    This brooch is a little more than 1 inch long, .75 inch at the widest portion.

    Many Thanks Everyone for Viewing.
    ----------------------------Vivah Jewellery – History------------------------------

    Vivah’s humble beginnings originate from Directions East, a trading company founded in 1972 by Zell Goodbaum who was living and working in India at the time. Zell developed a wide range of gift items and ethnic art objects for sale in Canada. For about 12 years, he traveled back and forth 3 times a year to the Eastern Asia, as well as across Canada, developing a successful wholesale distribution company.
    Among his customers were Birks, Eatons, Fairweathers and Suzy Shier, as well Zell operated three seperate Directions East stores selling handmade and natural material jewellery accessories. Around that time he met Vivah Goldberg, a self-taught gold and silversmith who had her own company called Separate Realities. She made her own moulds, carved her own stones, and was struggling as a craftsperson for recognition of her designs and ability.

    Zell recognized the talent he saw in Vivah’s designs, and soon Vivah was selling her work exclusively in the Directions East stores. After joining Zell on a trip to India, they formed a strong bond that gave birth to what is now; Vivah Jewellery!
    Since it’s humble beginnings, Vivah Jewellery has evolved from a jewellery wholesaler to a retail specialist in sterling silver, gemstones and bridal fashion with over 40 stores across Canada.

    Through the application of sound business principles and a commitment to providing unique, trendsetting styles, we’ve established ourselves as a leader in the Canadian market

    We base our business on the relationships we form with our staff, suppliers and customers. Our expertise has always been about finding the best… the best people… the best product… in order to achieve the best reputation in the business.

    We warmly welcome you to Vivah!
