This a beautiful vintage rhinestone snowflake style brooch by Phyllis. It has quality clear and blue rhinestones in a gold filled setting. Perfect to use as a sweater or wrap clip or repurpose it for a necklace or bracelet! Phyllis made high end costume jewelry in the 50s-60s and this gorgeous example stands the test of time.
PLEASE NOTE: this listing is for the brooch only the necklace is just to show you what you can do with it.
- Width = 2"
- Height (tallest) = 2"
Markings: Phyllis (makers mark) - 1/20 12K GF (gold content for gold filled jewelry)
(GOLD FILLED INFO - Please don't confuse gold filled with gold plated. Gold plated is a much lesser application. Gold fill has at least 50 times more gold content and last at least 10-20 years before any signs of oxidation.)
Condition: Good Vintage - This piece was well loved and well taken care of with some signs of light wear.
IDEA I LOVE - So brooches are one of my favorite things. I buy brooches that have broken pins all the time and upcycle them into other jewelry but when I find intact brooches I never could alter them or figure out what to do with them. People don't wear brooches anymore BUT...if you look at the last picture I had a great idea find a great and cheap necklace or some very pretty ribbon that goes with the piece and pin it on and you have a stunning statement necklace!!!!
