Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.169 (design); #35 in "Haskell Clip and Pin Backs" on Gordon website
This stunning early 1950s diamanté floral brooch by Miriam Haskell matches the “central motif” of a necklace shown in the Gordon & Pamfiloff book on this maker, where it is described as antique “silver metal leaves edged with rose montées and two large clear rhinestones surrounded by smaller rhinestones”. While the necklace is much more elaborate, this Frank Hess-designed piece is perfect for today, any time of day! And it would look gorgeous on a wedding gown. I bought this brooch for myself, but I am now reluctantly offering it to a new home.
