Hi and welcome to "AmoreTreasure". I was so excited to find this brooch!...Up for sale is a stunning, large Art Deco/Art Noveau clear and rich purple crystal large brooch that can optionally be turned into a hair comb. This one is absolutely gorgeous. It's tough to find large brooches in this style, but to find one with stones this colour is really rare. The ornate metal work features flowing leaves and is accented with a large oval cut purple crystal, two round cut purple crystals as well as lots of round cut clear crystals. You will not believe the rich colour (which is a bit deeper in person than photos show) and sparkle!

It is made of pot metal and has a style pin back and patina that would date it to the 1920s - 1930's. It has me a bit puzzled however, as I have never seen one from that period that has this gorgeous antiqued silver finish. The design in the metal work definately has an Art Nouveau influence. So I'm not sure if this was made in the 20's and 30's or perhaps a bit newer or maybe even a bit older. In any event, it is truly a beautiful piece! The brooch is in excellent vintage condition with all stones present, accounted for, and brilliant.

This brooch would be breathtaking pinned to a bridal gown on the front back or sash. Or if you prefer, I can mount it on a high quality silver plated hair comb at no extra cost. (The last photo shows the brooch just setting on a comb base to give you an idea of what it would look like as a hair comb.) Please convo me if you would like it converted.

They just don't make jewelry anymore with the quality of the jewels used on this. Why settle for vintage "look" (that always looks like a reproduction) cookie-cutter produced when you can have a true antique/vintage jewel???

This heirloom quality brooch measures a whopping 3 1/4 inches (8.2cm) by 2 inches (5 cm) and is sure to make a statement.

Also, please vist my etsy shop for my vintage couture bobby pins, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings made just for the bride or as gifts for the bridesmaids, maid of honor, and/or mother of the bride.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the day!

Frequently asked questions about AmoreTreasure

STEP 1: Measure your Wrist with a cloth tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, at the smallest part of your wrist, and measure it.

STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen on that paper. Then measure that paper strip with a ruler. That would be your wrist size.

STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below.

FITTING STYLE Add inch(es) to your wrist Size

Comfort fit add 1" - 1 1/4"
Looser fit add 1 1/4" - 1 1/2"

For example, my wrist is puny at 5 1/2". I like my bracelets on the looser side and wear this style bracelet at 7". It has room for movement but certainly is not falling off my wrist.
Petite = 6.75 inches (17 cm)
Small = 7 inches (18 cm)
Medium = 7.5 inches (19 cm)
Large = 8 inches - 8.5 inches (20 cm - 21.5 cm)
Plus Size = 9 inches (22.5 cm)

*** Because the links on my vintage earring bracelets are relatively large, you really need a bit more length than what you would take in a tennis style bracelet in order to have some movement.***

My earring bracelets come a standard 7 inch length. I can get them down to 6.75 inches without removing a jeweled link or can lengthen them to whatever size is needed by adding heavier 1/4 inch silver or gold plated chain links between the end jewels and the clasp hardware. There is no extra charge for altering the length.
I am happy to setup an installment payment plan for orders of at least $100(USD). Please contact me for details.
I offer free complimentary gift wrapping. Please just add a note on the invoice that you would like gift wrapping along with any message you would like included on a gift card.
To clean vintage rhinestone jewelry, slightly dampen a soft cloth with window cleaner and gently wipe the surface of the jewelry to be cleaned. NEVER submerge vintage rhinestone jewelry in any kind of liquid as the liquid can get underneath the rhinestones and damage the foil backing. Do not submerge vintage simulated pearl jewelry in any kind of liquid as it can damage the coating on the faux pearls.

It is important to always store your jewelry in a dry place.
Please be aware that in the spirit of "Reuse/Repurpose/Upcycle", I reuse outer packaging material whenever I have it. It is good for the environment and keeps shipping costs down for both of us. However, if you prefer I use new packaging, please just let me know.
