    I picked this beautiful brooch set for $37. I could hardly believe the seller let it go so cheap. Recently, one sold at auction for over $160. It's adorned with glass moonstone acorn fruit salads, red rhinestones and clear pave stones, in a swirl design. It also came with an optional choker snake chain, to wear as a necklace. It was designed by Alfred Philippe and is a patented piece, with the numbers 169,335. It's from 1953. Thanks for looking.
