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

    , ,

    This stunning amethyst, diamanté and vermeil sterling silver bouquet brooch by Adolph Katz for CoroCraft, Coro’s high-end line, is a wonderful example of the Retro Modern style. This piece has four pavé stems topped with amethyst glass stones and gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. I have photographed the piece 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 brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors. This piece was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s Brooch or Pair of Fur Clips by Coro

    , ,

    Two rows of amethyst glass stones separated by two rows of diamanté sit at the center of diamanté-studded folds of rose gold-plated sterling silver that form this 1940s Duette by Coro. This piece, which was created for Corocraft, the company’s high-end line, can be worn as a brooch or as separate fur clips. (Duette is Coro’s name for their double-clip brooch.) My camera picked up two stones that are 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.
