This 2" all rhinestone on silvertone brooch is shaped like a crown, with an interesting history. The B David jewelry co (1945-1993) made most of these crowns to order as "mother's " brooches, where the pear shaped stones would be colored with the children's birthstones a la the mother's rings, and the remainder of the brooch would have pearls & clear iridescent AB stones. The birthstones seen here include sapphires, garnet, topaz, amethyst & pink tourmaline. This particular crown could represent other family members and grandchildren.
Thank you Eileen for your comment on my last B David brooch , which got me investigating!
