A large, faceted square amethyst sits at the center of this sterling silver 1940s bow brooch with a pale gold wash by Mazer. The color of the stone is gorgeous, the style very Retro Modern and the construction very characteristic of the maker. This piece closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Although the gold plating is worn in places, this brooch still has warmth.
