This 1950s brooch by Miriam Haskell is a real knockout! It features a large, pale-grey faux pearl in the center, surrounded by a ring of faceted, round sapphire-glass stones set in silver-tone metal. Ten rays emanate from there, each with a sapphire-glass bead; a ribbed, egg-shaped emerald-glass stone; and tiny faux pearl accents. The construction is superb: a scallop-edged, round filigree plaque supports the center and holds the pin with a roll-over safety clasp. Each ray is supported by its own round filigree plaque topped with a triangular frame. Because of the complexity of the brooch’s design, I suggest wearing simple pearl earrings and/or a pearl bracelet. After all, the brooch should be the star of the show!
