Stunning vintage figural Leaf Brooch Pin encrusted with three vertical rows of crystal rhinestones and set in a Rhodium (brilliant silver) setting. Three vertical rows of the palest yellow crystal rhinestones adorn and add sparkling interest and brilliance to this vintage brooch pin. This beautiful vintage figural crystal-encrusted leaf brooch pin is extremely detailed and well-crafted.
The brilliant silver rhodium plating is over a base metal and the front of this vintage brooch is delicately but beautifully detailed, giving it an almost Victorian-inspired look with the graceful sweep of the leaf fronds.
A brooch, also known in ancient times as a fibula; is a decorative jewelry item designed to be attached to garments, often to hold them closed. It is usually made of metal, often silver or gold but sometimes bronze or some other material. Brooches are frequently decorated with enamel or with gemstones and may be solely for ornament or fashion or sometimes serve a practical function as a fastening, perhaps for a cloak.
The c-clasp of this vintage silver brooch works smoothly and securely. Measures 2-1/2" top to bottom and 1-1/8" wide (side to side). Weighs 0.4 ounces or 12 grams with no makers mark.
