    Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch by Coro

    , ,
    This Corocraft brooch is just stunning! This Adolph Katz-designed piece has four pavé stems topped with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones that are gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. The gold-plating on the flower is perfect – the difference in tone you see is from the camera’s reflection. What an outstanding example of the Retro Modern style! I have photographed the brooch in the horizontal position, as it appears in the patent drawing, but you could also wear it vertically (as shown in the second photo). This jewel, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors and was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose-Gold Brooch by Pennino Bros.

    , ,
    This vintage rose gold brooch is a striking Retro Modern piece made by Pennino Bros. in two layers. The top is a pavé ribbon of rhodium-plated metal that’s edged with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones topped with tiny diamanté. The center is cinched with rose-gold plated metal. The second layer is a furled rose-gold ribbon that’s attached to the top with a tiny screw. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. This brooch is not flat – the four corners of the bottom layer fold under, as curls of ribbon or fabric would. The back shows the high-quality, complex construction characteristic of this maker. Scroll down to see a variation of this design in rhodium-plated metal with sapphires.

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling Duette

    , ,
    This brooch/dress clips looks like folded fabric crowned with jewels. It is made of rose-gold-plated sterling silver edged with diamanté accents. At the center of each side is a row of amethyst-glass navettes topped with a row of diamanté. This Duette, which was created for Coro’s high-end line, can be worn as a brooch or as separate dress clips. Their double-prong fasteners work well with heavier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. My camera picked up two stones that appear to be a different shade of purple, but this difference cannot be seen by the naked eye. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.
