1950s Weiss Clear Ice Rhinestone Brooch - Weiss Vintage Brooch at Swanky Jewels 🔎zoom Description A very pretty double layered floral brooch made
A very pretty double layered floral brooch made by Weiss in the 1950s. The base layer consists of ten petals of marquise shaped clear ice crystals and the upper layer of five marquise petals with a circular central clear ice rhinestone. All of the rhinestones are bright and shiny with no yellowing, and are prong set into a silver tone base.

The signature WEISS is on the reverse one of the lower petals.

This pretty and unusual double layered floral brooch is in excellent condition. It's only fault is a very slight bend to the pin at the back, which happens to a lot of brooches when putting the pin through material.

A perfect addition to you vintage jewelry collection. Where it to a special event, cocktails or your wedding, or wear it daily, even with jeans.

1940s Pale Pink Glass and Bronze Brooch - Elegant 40s Vintage Brooch
A really pretty brooch from the 1940s. It consists of a large marquise-shaped glass stone in pale pink with some swirls within the glass, set into a bronze base with leaf-shaped prongs.

The reverse is open and the pin hooks under the clip. There is no lever to fasten the pin into the hook of the clip. This is how the brooch was made, the clasp is not broken.

In very good condition apart from the fact that the pin is a little bent.

All of my jewellery will arrive at your door boxed and beautifully wrapped.

I have photographed this brooch with a necklace that it goes well with. They are not a set and they did not come together, but they do match well. There's no obligation but you can have a look at the last photo in the necklace listing in the 'Vintage Necklaces' category if you wish.

Size: approx. 1 1/2 inches x 1/2 inch (4cm x 1cm)

1950s Gold Tone Brooch w/ Clear/Garnet Red Crystal Rhinestones
A Fabulous vintage rhinestone brooch from the 1950s. It's very ornamental and dressy with pretty little clear crystal rhinestones set into a gold tone base and surrounding a central prong set square deep garnet red square rhinestone.

It is in very good condition, with just the tiniest bit of tarnishing on the little gold raised dots on the end of the petals, which you wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't told you, but I'm telling you anyway.

This brooch looks much better in real life than my photographs show. I think it looks very royal (although if the Royals had it, it would be much bigger I guess). Maybe Baroque is a better word for the style.

Size: approx. 1.1 inches (2.7cm)
Price: 22 euro

1940s Ornate Filigree Dropper Brooch
A very ornate brooch from the 1940s, with a doubled over gold tone filigree upper section from which hangs three loops of chain with a large clear lucite elongated bicone hanging from the central chain.

The brooch is fastened with a rollover clasp which is in good working order.

The only issue is that the bar/pin that goes through the material you clip it to, has a slight bend in it. This is shown in one of the photos.

Size: approx: 3 1/2 inches long x 2 1/4 inches (8.9cm x 5.6cm)
Price: 15.00

Large Rhinestone AB Floral Brooch - Silver Tone - Vintage 1950s
This brooch from the 1950s is a large spray bouquet of flowers made of clear crystal faceted rhinestones with an AB (Aurora Borealis) finish, which are prong set into a silver-tone base.

The leaves and stems of the bouquet are silver-tone.

In very good condition with very little sign of wear, apart from a small amount of tarnishing to the pin. All original stones present.

Brooches don't need to be worn on garments. They look equally good on hats, scarves and bags. I keep mine attached to a heart-shaped padded notice board, so they make a lovely decoration for my bedroom when not being used.

This one is a lovely one to add to your vintage jewellery collection.

Miriam Haskell Vintage Brooch w/ Three Oval Faux Pearls - 1950s
A somewhat unusual filigree gilt bar pin brooch from Miriam Haskell. Made during the 1950s the brooch is quite large and set with three oval faux pearls. The pearls are held by fancy looped prongs.and there are tiny bead details accenting the brooch.

The brooch fastens with a pin and safety catch which is in perfect working order, and the Miriam Haskell signature is on the reverse, at the centre.

There is some very slight surface wear to one of the smaller pearls which takes the form of a small, (approx.1mm) patch that has worn away. It is barely noticeable because the colour underneath the surface is white also. In the first photo here, it is the pearl nearest to you.

A highly sought after collectable Haskell peice to add to your vintage jewellery collection.

Size: 3 1/8" x 1/2"
Price: 68 euro

Miriam Haskell established her Miriam Haskell Company in New York City in 1926. From the get-go, her handcrafted floral-themed costume jewellery was a hit with the stylish women of Manhattan, who adored her intricate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pins. Haskell loved gilt findings and filigree, faux pearls, Austrian crystal beads, blown glass beads from the island of Murano, and, above all, rose montees.
