Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose-Gold Brooch by Pennino Bros.
2 5/8" x 1 7/8"
Late-1940s? (based on non-use of sterling)
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.
