This incredible vintage articulated sterling silver Asscher cut rhinestone brooch is massive! The Retro Moderne style, c.40's, piece measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 3/4" (h).

The aquamarine center glass rhinestone is not only huge, it's shape is extremely unusual. The Asscher step cut stone measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 1/2" (h). The unusual part is the faceting. There are multi-facets not only on the upper portions of the stone but also on the lower portions allowing for maximum brilliance. The unusual cut was introduced in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland. Celebrities owning Asscher cut diamonds are Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon and our dear Elizabeth Taylor.

Surrounding the center rhinestone are 5 moveable wire stamen with small round prong set rhinestones. There are 2 in emerald green, 1 clear, 1 amber and 1 rose colored rhinestone. Surrounding the stamen are 12 gold vermeil/gold wash sterling silver petals, which vary in length for maximum interest. It is clearly marked "STERLING"

Overall, the condition of the piece appears to be good vintage (used/pre-loved). condition. The roll over clasp functions properly. There are some very minor condition issues which do not detract from the overall beauty of the piece and considered typical for the age (apprx. 70 yrs.). The center stone has 2 "flea bites" which can only be seen with a jewelers loupe. Some of the stamen wires have slight bends from repositioning. There is some very minor tarnish to the petals, also normal for sterling (of any age). Two of the petal edges have some roughness, again very minor. Cleaning and/or polishing is left to discretion of the buyer.

Please feel free to ask questions.
