This vintage 1950s brooch is a small single flower design, with apple green prong-set beads, an aurora borealis center rhinestone and smaller rhinestones surrounding it from below. For its newest life, I removed the old pin back, mounted the brooch on a square backing with compatible colors and added a magnetic-back clasp to make it easier to wear.

This piece is 1 and 1/8 inches by 1 and 1/2 inches at the largest points. It has a rise of 5/8 inch in the center. All of the beads are intact, quite shiny and in pristine condition. Although unsigned, this is a lovely piece with colors that are wonderful.

Firmly attached to the back is a very strong magnet that will hold this brooch to your garment, handbag, scarf, or virtually where ever you want it to be, that is, until you choose to remove it. Because of the options offered by the magnet vs. the traditional pin holder normally used on brooches, this brooch can be worn in any direction. In the photos I showed it worn turned several ways. The final photo shows a side angle so you can see the depth.

If this is your first foray into magnets, welcome to the exquisite world of Magnetic back brooches. These are an innovative, stylish and secure way to keep your brooch where ever you want it to be! No more pins to fumble with or pinholes to ruin your clothes or scarves. Magnetic brooches can be used as accents on clothing, scarves, hats and handbags. Let your imagination be your guide.

Even better, you will notice that many of the brooches are actually vintage pieces recycled for the modern era, so you can feel "green" and gloriously beautiful at the same time.

Quality neodymium rare earth Magnetic Fasteners are used on the back of each brooch as opposed to the traditional pin clasp. Magnetic fasteners will not damage or put holes in your clothing. A super–strong magnet will keep your brooch attached to virtually any type of clothing, from denim to suede, wool, leather, and silk. These brooches will not come off until you remove them.

Each magnetic fastener is selected based on the design and size of the brooch. Consequently various sizes, strengths or shapes may be used. The magnetic fasteners hold equally well on light thin fabrics, medium fabrics such as a wool jacket and heavy fabrics such as a leather coat. An exception to this are the very small round magnets used on the smallest brooches. These generally will hold well on all fabrics except very thick materials such as a leather coat or a sweater.
The magnetic backs are easy to use:
• With your thumb, PUSH and SLIDE the top magnet off the bottom magnet. (DO NOT try to pull them apart because they are too strong.) Remember to always SLIDE.
• Position your brooch anywhere convenient on top of your clothing and place the removed magnet beneath your garment and in back of the top magnet. Make sure you have the color-coded portion of the back magnet on the outside of the back. The 2 portions of the magnets will immediately bond together to create a secure attachment.
• When you are ready to remove the brooch, remember to use the same technique you used to put it on. Always SLIDE the bottom magnet off.

CAUTION: If you are pregnant or wear a pacemaker, please consult your physician before wearing any jewelry containing magnetic parts. Keep magnets away from children and items that can be affected by magnets such as credit cards, computers and pacemakers.
