      Wow!! That's a stunner. I am not familiar with that name of jewelry maker. I like the deeper blue on top of the slightly lighter shade of sapphire blue.

      A new one for me, but I recognize a beautiful design and quality settings anywhere !~

      How do you know so much Jenni? Not only knowing the companies (I have never heard of this one) but their history too.
      They knew their stuff, this is a beautifully balanced brooch and I love the opne design of it.

      With thanks to everybody for their love

      Thanks Andrea for your wonderful praise, it is really pretty how the deep blue stones have different shadings. This design came in many other colors including amber and pastels, but I thought the sapphire was the most dramatic & elegant. Yes this is a very obscure designer and they weren't around for many years, possibly because they didn't spare on quality stones or settings which included sterling silver & rhodium

      Thank you Scott for the fabulous compliment, I'm really glad you liked this one and am always happy to find a rare vintage designer to show my CW friends

      Ditto Mani & MrsT, your kind words are always uplifting and delightful, thank you so much for the sweet compliments!

      Phil you have the eye for quality jewelry & I am so delighted you enjoyed this piece. It has a very old time style to it, I can picture it worn on the high necked blouses of yesteryear. Thank you for your super praise

      Thanks so much Karen for your terrific compliments & my jewelry knowledge just comes from reading all I can find about vintage gems, often in books but in this case most of the info came from the internet - besides the above description I've seen Kandell & Marcus referred to as makers of high quality, limited edition handmade jewelry using the finest materials, in vintage inspired designs from art deco, art nouveau & Victorian times. Their pieces like this one are often very expensive so I only have one other one for a future post as I am not 'a Rockefeller' lol :)
