    I found this set for a few dollars and decided to get it, even though the pin is missing one of the green stones. The pin is marked M. Boucher, with a number dating back to the 1950's. The earrings have a different, later number. I figured, I will use one of the stones from the earrings to replace the missing one in the pin. However, when I took a second look, I liked the pieces too much. The picture is really bad. If you could see the brilliance and quality of the actual set, you would want to keep intact as well.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to find a replacement for the green stone?

    Thanks so much for looking.

      I have many rhinestone pieces not in perfect condition but I had to have them. This baguette shape is not easy to "find out there". When you're out hunting - it's a good idea to buy bags of loose rhinestones. I kick myself because I didn't buy a shoebox of loose cabs, rhinestones and other stuff (1/4" deep - not a FULL shoebox) recently. Have you tried to contact Boucher? Or, look on the internet - you might find someone out there w/a pin like yours in same condition - who knows? This is very nice - especially for a few dollars. When you find the stone be sure you use a good quality glue - so there isn't clouding and change in color.

      Thank you so much for your tips. I just started to collect about a year ago and I really enjoy the designs of costume jewelry - but sometimes get carried away. I'll try Boucher first. Once again, thanks a million

      This set is so lovely. The emerald green baguettes shine!
      And you know how I feel about “musical” inspired pieces!
      Splendid Boucher!
