Vintage Rhinestone Brooch, Openback Swirl with Red Accents, 3" x 1.75" Reborn by Roxy
This large unsigned brooch is in the shape of a swirl, or a stylized question mark. Large unfoiled stones in openback settings wind around the outside while a fine ribbon of Siam ruby crystals sweeps through the center.
2" wide x 2" long
All stones present and bright. The pinback looks to have been repaired in the past, you can see the different solder point at the lever end. This piece has been throroughly cleaned as the openback stones were quite grimy, and all of the red stones are replacements as many of the original stones were either missing or badly discolored. Please see the last photo for the original condition.
Reborn by Roxy: I have collected costume jewelry since I was a teenager. Sometimes it comes to me with dead and missing stones. After a steep learning curve I decided to try and rescue these pieces and bring them back to their former glory. Often, I am not able to do an original restoration due to lack of vintage parts, hence Reborn by Roxy. These pieces will be clearly marked as reimagined vintage pieces. I will try to include before and after photos for reference.
