Exquisite Roger Jean Pierre Cascading Leaves and Flowers Rhinestone Brooch
This stunning vintage 1950's brooch is from master French designer Roger Jean Pierre, who created jewelry for the top design houses. He opened his own company in 1960. His pieces were exquisitely crafted with elegant design features. This brooch features a cascade of hanging leaves in lavender rhinestones. The three flowers float on the center stem above the leaves, set with pale blue rhinestones and purple centers, all stones individually prong set. It is virtually impossible to capture the brilliance of the rhinestones, set off to perfection by the silver tone mounting. The brooch is in wonderful condition. There appears to be initials and possibly a date scratched into the plating on back of one of the navette rhinestones, hard to see with the naked eye but there. The brooch measures 2 3/4 by 1 1/2" and is unsigned, but identified by style and construction. He used hang tags on many of his pieces.
