    This possible Juliana brooch is 2.5" tall. I found one on the net that looked very much the same as this one and it was a Juliana. Now to get it verified. It has round and marquise stones, in purple and fuchsia, with golden swirls on top. When it arrived I gave it a full wash with antibacterial soap, using a q tip to get in the tight spaces. Then a rinse and terry cloth towel dry. Using spray duster, like you use for a computer, then air dry for about two hours with a fan. I then polished the gold tone back, with Turtle Wax Chrome Polish. During this time I felt over the stones and found one with a crack, not all the way through and two others with small chips. I contacted the seller and she gave me a full refund and let me keep the brooch. I love when that happens! Any thoughts or comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

      You brought it back to its former glory!
      The colors, especially the fuchsia, are just glorious. What do you think? An unsigned Weiss? Th little golden swirls... are they not a trait on many of their brooches? No matter, it certainly has found a good home! The pin mechanism shows the maker was of high- end jewelry!
      Wonderful find Ken!

      very appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Eileen, honestly I thought was a Juliana piece. Since finding the website IsItJulianaJewelry and learning how to negotiate that site I have a place to compare my finds to get authentic D & E. I also deleted four brooches that the sellers told me were Juliana - Not! There are so many fakes out there. Thank you for being supportive and very kind!! Your friend, Ken :)
