The focal point of this citrine brooch by Miriam Haskell is a luscious art glass stone that looks like a gumdrop. In true Frank Hess style, the rest of this 1950s piece is embellished with textured silver-tone beads and three golden topaz glass flowers. Rose montées complete the elements that are all woven onto a silver-tone filigree back. The size and shape make this brooch perfect for a collar, belt, hat, or purse.
