These faceted kite-shaped glass stones in sapphire blue and smoky grey are another example of the high-quality materials and imaginative combinations of shapes and colors in Schiaparelli jewelry. Here the shape of this 1950s brooch is mirrored in the shape of the stones, with round glass stones with an aurora borealis (AB) finish used as accents.  The AB stones add an iridescence that changes with the light. The setting is rhodium-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this gorgeous piece in a variety of positions — the photos show it vertically, so it looks like a kite, horizontally and at a right angle. You decide which of these choices you prefer, or you may think of another!

    Citrine & Rose Vermeil Sterling Calla Lily 1940s Brooch by Adolph Katz for Coro

    , ,
    Three deep citrine-colored prong-set glass-stone calla lilies are tied in a matching accented bow in this 1940s Retro Modern brooch. The setting has a rose-gold wash over sterling silver, with a roll-over safety catch. Until I saw the drawing on the design patent (see the last photo), I thought the brooch should be worn the other way around, so the flowers look as though they're reaching for the sky! I've positioned this piece in that direction in the third photo. This lovely Adolph Katz design for Coro's high-end line, Corocraft, was also made in multi-colored stones – scroll down to see it.
