The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of heart-shaped blossoms. Their gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. The ear clips are single hearts. The brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8″) was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.
