Vintage Chinese Export Silver Multi Gemstone Brooch: This vintage 1930's Chinese export brooch is crafted in 800 silver and set with an eye catching bevy of small polished gemstones, all prong set. I have not identified all the stones, but the array includes pink quartz, turquoise, pink tourmaline, jade, aventurine and others. Yes some of the beads do have holes. This is because the Chinese craftsmen reused everything, and these pieces were commonly made with beads left over from other projects. Nothing was wasted. The brooch measures 1 5/8" across and is marked SILVER CHINA. These pieces were usually made in 800 silver.
