Vintage D&E Juliana Turtle Figural Brooch Pin Book Piece Watermelon Rhinestone

Pink watermelon rhinestone gold turtle brooch

This gorgeous DeLizza & Elster JULIANA turtle figural brooch or pin is showcased on page 161 of Knutson & Wacher’s 2013 edition of “JULIANA JEWELRY THE LAST GENERATION 1970-80s Identification & Values.”

The brooch measures 2 5/8 inches long. It has large mauve-pink chatons around the center watermelon or vitrail stone, with smaller AB rhinestones all around. The head is a pink teardrop shape, with AB eyes.

The D & E Juliana trademark “figure-8 puddling” can be seen on the back of the tail piece. Of course, all the stones are prong-set, and the pin fastener is built-in as a part of the piece.

Knutson and Wacher value the brooch to $225.
