- Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1940s Jewelry, Coro JewelryThis calla lily brooch is a rose-gold-plated sterling silver ribbon tied in a three-looped bow. Three stems of flowers with citrine-glass navette centers sit on top, and three tiny navettes tie the stems together. This 1940s Retro Modern creation has a roll-over safety catch. Until I saw the drawing on the design patent (in the last photo), I thought the brooch should be worn the other way around, so the flowers are reaching for the sky! The photos show the brooch both ways, so you can decide. This lovely Adolph Katz design for Coro’s high-end line, Corocraft, was also made with multi-colored stones – scroll down to see it.USD$295.00
