"ALICE CAVINESS" on oval cartouche

Garlands of sapphire-blue-glass stones and faux pearls set in gold plating rise from a base formed by a large faceted sapphire-glass stone in this 1950s brooch by Alice Caviness. The garland-like outer rim appears to dance around the focal point center stone. The look of this three-dimensional piece is both elegant and versatile. I think this brooch ranks right up there with works by Hattie Carnegie, one of this maker’s contemporaries.
