This Schiaparelli brooch is one of those pieces that should come with instructions for how to wear it. So I’m showing this exquisite 1950s creation in three different positions, hoping that at least one of them will appeal to you. Or you may think of a better one! This incredible brooch has two large sapphire-blue lava rocks in dog-tooth prongs embellished with sapphires and amethysts. The complementary glass stones are round and navette in shape. The lava rocks have an incredible iridescence (like a fire within), and the color combination is delicious. The setting is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. This gorgeous statement piece is Schiaparelli at her best!
