Opal & Diamanté Leaf Brooch by Marcel Boucher
2" x 1 1/2"
1950 (based on inventory number, per Brunialti)
This opal brooch from 1950 looks like fine jewelry, with its fiery art-glass center surrounded by sparkling diamanté. The leaf-shaped setting outlined with additional sparkling stones is rhodium-plated metal and has a roll-over safety clasp. Of all the Boucher pieces in this collection, I think this one is the best. How beautifully it would adorn any outfit. How about a bridal gown?
