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.

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.

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.
