Vintage Vendome Mother of Pearl Rhinestone Statement Brooch Pendant
Vintage Vendome Mother of Pearl Domed Rhinestone Statement Brooch Pin puts the S in Stunning and Special. This magnificent brooch is set with a central Osmena pearl which is a polished piece from a Chambered Nautilus shell. The pearl is encircled by 3 rows of rhinestones; clear, black, and citrine yellow. The backside is magnificent and looks as gorgeous as the front with its filigree open work design and the delicate filigreed flower with a prong set rhinestone at its very center. This flower is located above the Vendome signature cartouche. This is a true statement piece of jewelry. The design appears as though it might have been a prototype although I will leave you to be the judge.
The brooch pin is also designed with a necklace bale and a pin back. To more closely inspect photos, simply click on the binocular icon on the top right corner of any photo.
The Vendome line was introduced in 1953 as the successor to the Corocraft line and aimed at " a wealthy American clientele aspiring to post-war Parisian chic". Vendome is highly sought after and would be a beautiful piece of costume jewelry for your collection.
This gorgeous brooch is in an oval design with a gold plated base setting. Rhinestone chatons are all prong set, including the one rhinestone set at the brooch's back center. The brooch measures 3" tall, 2 1/ 2" wide, and 3/4" deep and is signed "Vendome " on a cartouche on the backside. Weighs 53 grams and the central pearl shell measures 1 1/2" tall and 1" wide.
I have a vast inventory of some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Kramer, Krementz, Lane, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Avon, Coro, Sara Coventry, and Lisner.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many have matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
This piece comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected various antiques and unsigned and signed designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me and I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories and other collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.
Received item exactly as described. Very happy with my purchase, thanks.
What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
Very special gift for myself
