This stunning Coro leaf pin in rose-gold-washed sterling silver has pavé along one curved edge. Layered on top are three stems topped with flowers formed by diamanté leaves and aquamarine-glass-stone centers. This spectacular 1940s piece was designed by Adolph Katz for Coro Craft, the company’s high-end line. This three-dimensional Retro Modern brooch is in amazing condition, has a roll-over safety clasp, and is perfect for women who look best in warm colors. This piece was part of my personal collection – I am reluctantly offering it to a new home. Note that any color variations in metal are only camera reflections.
