Christian Dior 1960 Rhinestone and Glass Vintage Brooch

This beautiful brooch was created by Christian Dior in 1960. Wonderfully, it comes complete with its original packaging. 

Condition Report:

Very Good - A couple of tiny scratches to the surface of a couple of beads. These marks are barely visible due to the fact that the beads move when the brooch is worn. The original box is also aged on its exterior.

A Short History...

Examples of Christian Dior jewellery from the 1960s, such as this brooch, are highly collectable. This is particularly because they are often dated with the exact year of their manufacture - a rare treat for costume jewellery enthusiasts. In the case of this piece, the year of its creation was 1960 and this can clearly be seen. Dior's jewellery from the 1960s is also highly collectable because of the bold, stylised and elegant designs highly reminiscent of the era and the House's fashions. Christian Dior jewellery from the period is also of outstanding quality because the man himself insisted upon the house's accessories emulating the prestige of its couture. With its great heritage, beautiful design, excellent crafting and lovely condition - this brooch is a rare, must have indeed.
