The Details...
This brooch is constructed from silver. It features a branch with leaves encrusted with small, round, clear rhinestones. Attached to the branch are three flowers. Two are encrusted with pink, round rhinestones and have a rose gold coloured plating and stamens. One is encrusted with jonquil yellow rhinestones and features a gold coloured plating and stamens. All of the flowers have large, claw set, clear rhinestones a their centre. The flowers are also attached to the branch with springs so that they are 'en tremblant', meaning that they will move with the wearer. the brooch fastens using a traditional safety catch and the fastening pin is attached to the reverse of the brooch with around hinge. The brooch is signed. It is stamped with what appears to be the Swarovski Swan symbol on the reverse and also the numbers 925. The brooch measures 8.5cm x 4.5cm.
A Short History...
Diamante and gilded jewellery was in demand in the 1980s, as a reaction to the hippy chic and modernist metals of the 1970s. Women wanted glamour in their accessories again and companies, such as Swarovski, alluded to the cocktail jewellery of the Fifties in their work. This large scale brooch would have satisfied a renewed need for chic diamante and bold colourways.
Wear it With...
This piece would provide a beautiful corsage alternative for a wedding guest. Alternatively, it would look chic pinned to a crisp white bazer worn with jeans for summer.
