Three trios of textured leaves are layered on this 1950s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli. The matching ear clips each have a single leaf. The finish is a warm (but not bright) gold-tone. Although I have a bracelet with the same design, that piece has a silver-tone finish. Scroll down to see the bracelet.
