The Details...

This silver tone metal brooch features a circular design detailed with a pearlescent grey, round, glass cabochon at its centre. This is surrounded by a ring of topaz coloured tapered baguette cut rhinestones and a further ring of round, claw set, clear rhinestones. The brooch fastens with a traditional safety catch and the fastening pin is fitted to the brooch with a round hinge. The brooch measures 3.5cm in diameter.  

A Short History...

Featuring high quality stones, well manufactured settings and elegant design details, this brooch has the hallmarks of a piece created in France for couturiers during the post-war era. It bears a striking similarity to a brooch made by the great parurier Roger Jean Pierre in 1960, which is feaured in the book 'Costume Jewellery for Haute Couture' by Florence M√ľller. Therefore this piece is highly likely to have been created by Pierre. 

Wear it With...

Such a romantic and high quality piece, deserves a special occasion. Why not pair this brooch at the waist of a satin wedding gown with a bateau neckline.
