    ORA signed brooch - unknown date Clear Rhinestones on Silver tone metal.
    some history:
    Founders: Oreste Agnini and Ralph Singer ~ Chicago IL, USA
    ~ 1921 to Current- Their website states that they were the first costume jewelry company based in Chicago. The companies products have been seen in magazines. In addition to jewelry they also produced fraternal pins. In fact, they still do. The hallmark ORA was used for the first time in the 1940s.
    Jewelry is still being produced from the companies original molds. The jewelry then and now is high quality and high- end. Some have said that the jewelry looks like Bogoff jewelry. Others have said that the jewelry is undervalued.

      Very nice blue piece!
      The small stones almost look bezel set, but hard to tell from photo.
      Never the less, ORA is a designer we don”t often see, thank you for posting and the info Lori!

      Eileen the stones are actually clear - the camera must pick up the blue from somewhere I should redo the photo to show the clear stones better. thank you for your comment.
