Ruby & Diamanté Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

Ruby & Diamanté Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli


Additional information


Elsa Schiaparelli


3" diameter






"Schiaparelli" (in script) on oval cartouche

This aurora borealis rhinestone brooch features a trio of flowers. Clusters of ruby-glass beads form the centers that sit atop the rhinestone petals. In person, this piece looks like a display of fireworks – the iridescence of the AB navettes is hard to capture in photos. The setting of this 1950s Elsa Schiaparelli jewel is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. Even the back of the brooch is textured! With this statement piece, all you need to complete your jewelry accessories is a pair of faux or real diamond stud earrings. If black and white is more to your taste, scroll down to see the same design in that color combination.
