Brown tortoise shell smoky gray rhinestone gold pin brooch

This lovely large vintage brooch is true to 1950s – 1960s styling but we would date it to the 1980s.  It is in goldtone and is decorated with prong set open backed pale grey marquise and chaton cut rhinestones and large prong set faux tiger’s eye striped art glass cabochons.  It’s very chic and is perfect for adding a touch of vintage sparkle to your jewellery box!

Date  1980s     Dimensions   2.3″ (5.7cm) x 2″ (5cm)  Condition Report  Very Good – in very nice clean undamaged condition with no missing stones and very light wear  Signed  Unsigned.

☆This is an awesome vintage mod cat eye frame, in exceptional condition. Pre-owned – contains prescription lenses in it.

☆Made of brown type of plastic with a gorgeous imitation tortoise pattern in it; lovely gilding, glittering rhinestones, studs.

☆Does contain prescription lenses of a former owner, which an optician needs to remove if you want to use them.

☆Pre-owned.

☆Shows truly nominal signs of wear you’d expect to see considering its age – a little surface wear, nothing major. All stones and studs appear to be present. Gilding is truly golden in appearance (not tarnished). Hinges work well // arms open wide (possible to accommodate a wider face).

☆Markings I see are: Pyramid Randy Frame Israel 46-20.
