This stunning 1950s three-dimensional brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli features clusters of ruby-crystal beads atop ruby and aurora borealis (AB) rhinestones. In person, this piece looks like a display of fireworks – the iridescence of the AB navettes is hard to capture in photos. The setting 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 genuine diamond stud earrings. If black and white is more to your taste, scroll down to see the same design in that combination.
