This gold-filled circle brooch is formed by a series of rings in different designs. The widest is convex and made of gold-mesh, with an overlay of gold leaves and vines along with tiny pink-topaz glass stones. A narrow ring of aquamarine-glass baguettes provides further embellishment. At the top is an elaborate horizontal bow with three loops on each side and in the center. This 1940s brooch by Walter Lampl has a roll-over safety clasp and a loop at the top and bottom to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant.
