A gold toned book, with a red rose on the faux mother-of-pearl cover, hangs from a bow shaped, pin back brooch. The book opens to reveal a secret hiding place to store photos or precious mementos.

The inside of this brooch is a little discolored (as you can see in the third photo). I tried cleaning it with a little white vinegar but it didn't do much good. It doesn't seem to be rust or corrosion because it is smooth to the touch.

from the top of the bow to the tip of the book:

2 and 3/4 inches (approx 7 cm)

the book itself:

1 X 1 1/8 inches (2.54 X 2.3 cm)

I considered altering this to make it into a pendant, but it is so precious as it is. I just couldn't bring myself to take it apart.

If you would be more interested in this as a necklace, please contact me here on Etsy. I would be happy to make it into a custom necklace. I may charge a little extra, but not much. we can talk about it.
