Snowflake Rhinestone Brooch Collection With Vintage OTC Pin

Bitchin Retro


It's snowing! Collection of (3) rhinestone brooches - each with a unique design, and in complementary shades of pink, grey and icy wintry whites. These beauties would be striking on a darker pea coat, or sweater. The clear snowflake is vintage, circa 1980's by OTC Jewelry, while we believe the other two are fashion pins, and unmarked.

The white and grey snowflake is 2" diameter.

The pink snowflake is 1 7/8" diameter.

The OTC clear snowflake is 1 7/8" diameter.

Bitchin Retro Notes:  All brooches have been thoroughly cleaned, and given a light polish. The OTC brooch is in excellent vintage condition. The pink and grey brooches are in very good to excellent pre-owned condition. **Fashion jewelry sold today does not always have the same attention to detail that vintage pieces were given. The grey brooch has some minimal glue overages as seen thru a loupe, but not visible without magnification. The pink rhinestones have amazing color and reflection, though they are a high grade lucite, and not a glass rhinestone. This is not uncommon, but we wanted to bring it to your attention. Thru a loupe, we observed a few small flea bites left from the extrusion at manufacturing. You would be hard pressed to see it without magnification, especially with the light reflection from the facets. All of these minor peculiarities are quite common with today's fashion jewelry, and without a jeweler's loupe, probably unnoticed by most. But we scrutinize all pieces - vintage or contemporary, and wanted to bring all observances to your attention.

Vintage and 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, and 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.
