Rare Early Panetta Rhinestone Tree & Dangling Crystal Brooch

Price $95.00
Dimensions: 3 by 1 1/2"
Designer signed: Panetta
Item # BRPANRRSTTR

This  very hard to find early Panetta brooch features rhodium plated metal in a tree motif, set with sparkling pave' set rhinestones.  Each of the lower branches suspends an articulated clear pear shaped crystal.  Please note the small rhinestones are set like fine jewelry, actual true pave' setting, not glued in.  A few of the crystals have darkened with age.  The tree is framed with a fine milgrain edging, another sign of the quality of Panetta jewelry.  The rhodium plating is as bright as the day it was made.  Panetta also made a later, 1960's version of this brooch with textured bark and no rhinestones on the tree, but to me it doesn't hold a candle to this piece.  The brooch measures 3 by 1 1/2".  It is signed Panetta on the trunk.
