Staret Rhinestone Flower Brooch Aqua Emerald Cut Stones

Aqua blue emerald cut rhinestone flower pin brooch

An over the top, vintage rhinestone flower brooch done in aqua rhinestones and signed Staret.

MARKINGS: The back is signed Staret. The American Costume Jewelry book by Brunialti states on page 54 that there is not alot of information about Staret Jewelery Co. They were based out of Chicago from 1941 to 1947. Their brooches are similar to Eisenberg pieces, which are characterized by abstract and floral subjects and a use of high quality crystals. It is not known whether or not Staret manufactured their own goods of had an external manufacturer.

ITEM DESCRIPTION: The brooch is a double flower brooch done in aqua blue rhinestones. The majority of the stones are emerald cut with the exception of the center stones, which are round. The emerald cut stones are all set open back and the stones are all foiled. It is quite large and measures 3 5/8″ x 1 3/4″. The safety catch clasp is built into the rhodium plated base metal and the stones are all hand set.

CONDITION: The condition is excellent with very little wear to the metal. The original stones were also in light aqua stones but they were in very bad condition. All the stones in this piece have been replaced with new Swarovski rhinestones.
