    I have NEVER seen this brooch before, let alone up for sale. So when a friend had it for sale, I snagged it!
    Pristine condition for over 50 years old! My photos do not do this piece justice! Click on the photos, gives a much better view!
    Yes, I love the red, and there is also one in forest green, but this topaz is really amazing! Of course, this is part of a set, earrings (someday), bracelet & necklace which I will never own. Not only are these pieces ultra rare, they run into the four figures which takes all the joy out of it in my book.
    I'm happy with the brooches, and hopefully earrings to match someday....
    I forgot to add that these are over three inches wide!

      The prism like stones are quite unusual, the red magnifico and love the gold colour. Its nice too that we may never see the rarest in person, but hope is eternal !~This brooch seems that one could cherish this quite easily !~

      Both are beautiful. Love them! I agree that it can be discouraging realizing how expensive it is to find matching pieces, and really great when the collecting gods put one in your path. :-)

      Wow, what a spectacular find! I’ll have to be on the lookout :)

      Phil, you know your comments mean a lot to me, you being the collector of some of the most fabulous vintage jewelry on the planet. The art glass dangles are unusual, as D & E acquired them from Germany, or so I've read. And not so many, so that'swhy these pieces are so hard to come by.

      Thank you for the wonderful compliment on my "Dangle" brooches. Someday, hopefully I'll come across the forest green brooch!

      Mary, yes, sometimes I wonder if the sellers know these are "fabulous fakes", and not real gem stones. Lol! The lady that sold me the Ruby Red brooch said she had the earrings to match, and that she would have to look for them. Said they're mine when she comes across them. Waiting patiently! Seems she has "boxes of jewelry put away". Can you imagine having so much jewelry you can't find a piece?

      Thank you MrsT.
      I am very happy with "my finds". These are nearly impossible to come by, as the Topaz is the first I have ever seen up for sale! but I do wish you luck. They are beautiful, I plan on wearing these quite often.

      Eileen - I do have some missing pieces in my hoarder apartment :-) But they are in a general area, it's just a matter of doing a Spring (Summer LOL) cleaning to herd it all back to the storage places. Oh Boy!

      Mary, you are not the only one who misplaces things,but as far as my jewelry dear, it stays in one place and one place armoire! Ask me how many times a day when I walk by, I just pull out a drawer and just smile... Yes, I'm weird lol

      Thank you Rose!
      So nice to have you back and from now on, watch your step please!
      I mean that sincerely....

      And all the prongs needed for the small stones that are pronged to perfection here, you inspire people to demand prongs in their jewellery !~ I blame it all on you, but seriously this is a set to make the mouths water and need for an air respirator come into vogue in this pandemic time.

      Phil, once again, you put a smile on my face. One with a collection of your caliber “loving” on my pieces makes my day, as I have said time and time again! It’s very early morning here in California, and I’m off to spend the day with my Grandsons. Gonna post some pictures later in the week, of a hike we took this weekend. One has to get out of the house or we would all go mad! Temperatures in the 70’s and are gonna reach the 80’s this week. Ah, California weather. This is why it’s so expensive to live here, I, for one, am staying! Ha!

      Have a great time, and the reds in the red version seem close to the dark red of Sherman's Siam red !~
