Vintage Weiss Powder Blue Rhinestone Circle Brooch: Leave it to Weiss to raise the classic circle brooch to a whole different level! This brooch is crafted in rhodium plated metal, the finish as bright as the day it was made. The circle is composed of chaton and teardrop rhinestones, all individually prong set, with tons of brilliance. Overlaying the rhinestones are three small branches of three leaves set with tiny clear chaton rhinestones. My pictures do not begin to do this piece justice!

Pomerantz features huge elongated ears in amber topaz glass stones and an applied tale in silver tone metal, set with sparkling rhinestones. These pieces are always unsigned. A book piece, he can be found in Kathy Floods "Warman's Costume Jewelry Figurals" on page 52. The bunny measures 3 by 1 3/8" and is in very good condition for his age. Light plating wear and some wear of the paint on his eye, minor at best.
Huge Vintage Aurora Borealis Pinwheel Brooch: This large and magnificent brooch is crafted in gold tone metal and set with sparkling aurora borealis rhinestones. the pinwheel design is fluid and lovely. Each stone is individually prong set. The center of this beauty features a slightly raise circle of larger chaton rhinestones with an even bigger raised center stone, adding depth and dimension. The brooch measures 2 1/2" and is unsigned. There is light wear to the coating on the large center stone, nothing to distract but mentioned for accuracy.
Victorian Blackened Sash Brooch with Black Molded Glass Stones: This stunning late Victorian sash brooch features an unusual foliate design with art nouveau elements, most likely a transition piece. Possible a mourning piece, with the metal having been blackened and the use of black stones, but it would not have been deep mourning due to the use of faceted stones. Since the death rate was high, and even cousins were mourned, women were often in black, and black became a fashion statement. The brooch is quite unusual, and I can't find another like it. The black faceted glass stones are molded. The brooch is large like most sash brooches, measuring 3 1/4 by 2 1/4". The open C-clasp holds securely.
Vintage Pink and Red Rhinestone and Opalescent Glass Cross Pendant/Brooch Necklace: This lovely and large vintage cross is a combination brooch/ pendant necklace. The cross features gold tone metal set with marquise hot pink rhinestones. The center is a faceted opalescent glass stone surrounded by prong set ruby red rhinestones. overlaying each pink marquise is a larger red rhinestone. The gold plate shows light wear on the back. There is a clip for a chain. I have included the 24" chain which came with the piece, but you could easily change it out of you desire for another length chain. The cross itself measures 3 by 2". The piece is unsigned.
