KD-TR Sterling Silver Brooch With Hearts in an Envelope

Bitchin Retro


KD-TR is short for Kathleen Doyle and Tom Reardon of Portfolio Metalwork which produces artisan jewelry to this day. This sterling silver brooch features multiple textures and finishes in an adorable "love letter" theme. Cute gift idea for anyone in a long distance relationship - sending love over the miles.

1 5/8" wide x 1 1/2" tall.

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This brooch is in excellent pre-owned condition, has been thoroughly cleaned, and given a light polish. We list this as pre-owned jewelry, as we cannot determine an accurate production date. KD-TR has been in business since at least 1995. In addition, one of the hearts, and the inside of the envelope are highly reflective, and easily captured our camera and hands. We tried to provide a variety of photos to show that there are no black or flesh toned marks on the piece itself. :) Please see condition descriptions below.

Pre-owned jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
