      Wonderful early Hollycraft. Look how the stones are prong set. Superb example. Thanks for sharing it.

      Lori, what a wonderful, rare piece from Hollycraft! The stones on this marvelous brooch are called “Margaritas”!” A specialty stone that has a raised center with a scalloped edge that runs all the way around the stone. The center is usually mounted and secured with a center rhinestone” “A rivoli is a highly faceted rhinestone that is pointed at the top” and before some call me the “self-proclaimed expert” these definitions are from Katerina Musetti’s glossary.
      Hollycraft made beautiful pieces and what’s so much fun is that they are dated! This looks like an easy fix Lori. Go to Moonsphere’s at Etsy. The shop owner is Laura. Just send her a message of the stones you need, and she will make you up a special order! VERY REASONABLY PRICED and a very nice lady!
      Once again, a lovely piece by Hollycraft!

      Gorgeous . I am lost I thought they were rivoli stones also ? I have a Weiss brooch posted and was told it was ravoli cut stones and they look just like yours :-)

      Eileen! Thank you so much. I am so excited to see the comments rd on this brooch. The name will change appropriately. I can't believe all of my jewelry that was tucked away and it took moving to another state to rediscover my own collection. This proves to me that if we look we all have something to be Thankful For. Thank you for your "expert" advice. : ) Lori
