    I found this Rhinestone Brooch in some of my things, I don't remember when I got it, but it could have been my mother's. It looks very well made, but it doesn't have any makers marks of any kind. Just interested to know the company that made it, because it's so nice looking! :^D
    The photos that I took on the blue print velvet, made the stones look red, and metal gold, so I took some on the cream colored material, and the colors are more true!
    The Brooch is 2 5/8" x 1 1/2"

    Thank you for looking, any information, and all comments welcome! :^)

      Lovely brooch Bill, nice tied bow shape, pretty red/pink rhinestones and marcasite style

      Bill,
      With the literally thousands of jewelry manufacturer's, it is impossible to track down the makers of some pieces unless, by chance, someome has seen this piece or even own this piece.
      I love the curve of the design, and the center is quite lovely with the navettes & RS. The pin mechanism is what I look for in a brooch. Joint & Catch...not a separate piece riveted on. We might not be able to know the maker, but what I do know is it's beautiful and if this was your Mother's...all the more special.

      Thanks Jenni, the shape is what I first noticed, because it was tarnished and dirty, when I found it. I could hardly see the stones, that look like a dark Amethyst on the petals, and lower ribbon, and lighter Lavender in the flower center, and upper ribbon, and all the stones are set, not glued. You're correct about the marcasite look, they're just bumps in the metal, not faceted! :^D

      Thank you Eileen, I know that my chances are slim, but wanted to show because it is such a nice looking Brooch, and there's a lot of people here that know their Jewelry, so I can hope! :^D It really seems to be well made, and why I was surprised that there was no makers mark! I'm not sure if it was my mothers, but my oldest sister might remember it, but she'll wear it if I give it to her, for her 70th Birthday next week, it will be special to her, I'm sure! :^D

      Hey Thomas, always good to see ya! :^D Thanks for the love! :^)
    11. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      Your sister will be thrilled! I know I would.
      A gift such as this has so much more meaning than, let's say, stopping at the local
      grocery for a bunch of flowers. LOL
      And if it was your Mother's, it couldn't be more perfect!
      Happy Birthday to your Sister! :)
