Pale sapphire and peridot glass stone surround an amazing center stone with straight-line striations -- known as porphyry glass -- in a Carnegie-favored leaf motif.

These faceted kite-shaped glass stones in sapphire blue and smoky grey are another example of the high-quality materials and imaginative combinations of shapes and colors in Schiaparelli jewelry. Here the shape of this 1950s brooch is mirrored in the shape of the stones, with round glass stones with an aurora borealis (AB) finish used as accents. The AB stones add an iridescence that changes with the light. The setting is rhodium-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this gorgeous piece in a variety of positions -- the photos show it vertically, so it looks like a kite, horizontally and at a right angle. You decide which of these choices you prefer, or you may think of another!
