Vintage Jomaz Sapphire and Clear Rhodium Plated Rhinestone Leaf Brooch
This stunning vintage brooch from Jomaz features a leaf and spay flower design, with heavy rhodium plating. The stylized leaf and ribbons are embellished with baguette rhinestones which are channel set like fine jewelry. The tip of the leaf is bead set with tiny chaton rhinestones. The center of the leaf is set with sapphire blue chaton rhinestones as are the floral spray on each side. All set in heavy prongs. The ribbons, curls and stems are bead set with small chaton rhinestones. The edges of the brooch have a milgrain texture, found in high end jewelry. These early pieces of Jomaz jewelry were made with the same techniques as fine jewelry, and have retained their condition over time because of the high quality of construction. There are a few rhinestones that have darkened slightly, but the sparkle in this piece is amazing! The brooch measures 2 1/2 by 1 3/4" and is signed JOMAZ.
