    I bought this brooch to wear on a dress. This is my first piece of Polcini. I saw a similar Polcini brooch in the Fior Exhibition Catalog. Fior was a famous shop in London that closed 20 years ago after decades in business. The owner kept samples of the jewelry that were recently shown in an German exhibition titled Luxury for Fashion. This brooch is 2" in length.

      Awesome vintage Polcini beauty Maureen, the ruby red ovals are so beautifully faceted against the icy deco framing, it's truly a knockout & a fabulous find
    2. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      I know these colors Maureen! Photos do not do it justice. Polcini used only Swarovski crystals, and rhodium plating, several layers for a “mirror finish”. Polcini pieces, such as this lovely are rare and very hard to come by, and it’s in impeccable condition! Your brooch of ruby and ice is, in a word, magnificent!

      Wow, beautiful!

      Plein-air I am always amazed at the beauty and quality of your jewellery.
      This is stunning.
    5. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      Karen, me too! Isn’t her jewelry fabulous? When ever I see a new post, I get so excited!
      That invisibly set “circle” brooch, and the “leaf”, you just don’t see pieces like this everyday!

      Ken Thank you I know you have a discerning eye for quality.
      Jenni I admire your collection immensely. It is just such fun to connect with costume jewelry aficionados. Thanks for the love!
      Karen, Nice to meet you, if I may be so bold. Thank you so much for your kind comment and love.
      Eileen, What can I say? Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. You've got a spectacular collection which includes a magnificent Polcini brooch and earrings! Hope we can meet someday.
      And to my other CW friends
      Thanks for the love!

      Hi Daisy1000, thanks for the love!
    8. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      I wish all designers used plating like Polcini, I have never seen a piece, ( though his pieces are rare) with verdigris or worn out plating.
      Shows the quality of his pieces!
    9. plein-air-painter plein-air-painter, 11 months ago
      Eileen, so agree. The quality is just outstanding. I saw a Polcini brooch that was similar in design in the Fior catalog, Luxury for Fashion and it had the most beautiful matching earrings. Now I want to find the earrings. I notice your Polcini set has the earrings. That is just fabulous. I went and looked at it again just to admire. Best, Maureen

      I had to revisit this wonderful Polcini!

      I was going through my jewelry yesterday and came upon my Polcini, and immediately thought of you and yours! Glad all is well and so good to see you!

      Lovely, Lovely, - wow. I could wear this on a white cashmere coat anywhere and would look at every reflection as I passed.
    15. plein-air-painter plein-air-painter, 4 months ago
      Richmond Lori - White cashmere coat ! Elegance personified. Love the imagery you conjure.

      Hi Eileen, I'd love to find the drop earrings that Polcini made for this line.,,,Another pipe dream. So good to hear from you, too!
    16. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 months ago
      Maureen, I wore my Polcini yesterday out shopping, like I said I would for Christmas! A young girl came up to me and said, “What a stunning brooch! Are those garnets?” I thanked her and said, “it’s costume, nearly 60 years old”. “Wow”, sh said, looks like the real thing!” I told her that was the idea! Merry Christmas!
    17. plein-air-painter plein-air-painter, 3 months ago
      Eileen, What a lovely story! Wear it everywhere, every day! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

      Came back today to take another look -

      LOVE this, the color, the glamor, yet blue jeans work too (with cashmere of course).

    19. plein-air-painter plein-air-painter, 2 months ago
      RichmondLori, What a great combination! Musthave the cashmere:)

      Racer4four (Karen),
      Thanks for the love!
