This vintage rhinestone brooch is a stunning, three-dimensional 1950s jewel by Elsa Schiaparelli. It is formed by three layered flowers. The centers are clusters of onyx-glass beads that sit atop petals of onyx glass and aurora borealis (AB) rhinestones. The AB navettes reflect spectacular colors and give this piece so much life, which is hard to capture in photos. The colors change as the wearer moves. The setting is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. If red is your color, scroll down to see the same brooch in that fiery hue. Wear either piece to create an unforgettable look!
