Austria Fuchsia and Rose Rhinestone Leaf Brooch
A gorgeous and unique example of late 1950s Austria jewelry! This leaf brooch features fuchsia and light rose colored rhinestones in an ornate gold tone setting. The stem is composed of baguette shaped fuchsia rhinestones. Each of the leaves features a large oval fuchsia rhinestone and six smaller round light rose colored rhinestones. The leaves are made from ribbon folded strips of metal creating a wonderfully intricate three dimensional look. This brooch is hand constructed and I have not seen another example just like it. Very unusual! The vibrant color of this brooch makes it a perfect accent piece to add character to any outfit. This brooch is large, measuring 3" long x 1 3/4" wide x 5/8" deep. However the openwork construction style keeps it lightweight so it will not weigh down lighter weight fabrics. The rhinestones are all prong set and in excellent condition. The back of the brooch has an "Austria" hallmark plaque soldered in the center. This is a wonderful addition to your jewelry collection!
