I have this large red rhinestone brooch with marquis cut stones, round stones and 8 tear-shaped amber stones. My question is about the back - I think this is called 'cut-back' design but I can't find any information to date this piece. It is substantial and weighs 25 grams.
The back looks like it was designed & made and then riveted to another layer. The pin mechanism sits on a gold-tone round 'snowflake' design piece that is riveted on.
When was this type of brooch made? Where? Who? I can't find a mark. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
