Vintage Rhinestone Snowflake Brooch Trio With Holiday Style
The star of this snowflake show packs a whopping (7) layers of glorious rhinestone beauty in nearly three inches of wow factor with a 7/8" dome. Many of the layers are angled ever so slightly, and just enough to provide even more sparkle and shine. The companion snowflakes are classic scatter pins that drip with vintage nostalgia. A retro trio that would look fabulous on a jean jacket or black pea coat.
Main Snowflake - 2 3/4" diameter.
Second flake - 1 3/8" diameter.
Third flake - 7/8" diameter.
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: Cleaning rhinestones is a labor of love...and after decades of dust and dirt, this three pack took a lot of effort, and eight passes to get these sparklers squeaky clean. They were dried thoroughly with a gentle heat, as well as moving air. All were given a light polish. None of these brooches are marked, though we do believe the largest snowflake is of high quality. We checked several data bases for popular vintage designers, to see if this was an entry without a makers mark, but we did not find this particular piece. We are still looking! :) These brooches are in very good vintage condition. There are small flea bites, as seen thru a loupe. The riveted arms, and lowest layer of rhinestones are movable by design, some more than others, but easy to place in position if they get jostled. Please see condition descriptions below.
Vintage 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 both size perception and imperfections actually not visible without magnification, but allows you to see the quality of the piece. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.
Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe.
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.
