Coro 1950's Bling

My husband found this brooch at a Nun Monastery Church Sale for $2.

 It is a vintage Coro piece from the early 1950's.

  It is a bold peice measuring  3.25" x 1.25". 

 The base is done in a  ruffled edging which reflects light  and compliments the prong set rhinestones. 

The stones are pale yellow, pale green and sparkling clear.

This brooch for some reason has truly challenged my ability with a camera.  It is much prettier than I can photograph.

  1. Gold star for your hubby! I love the shape; makes me think of Art Deco. I have a similar-shaped brooch but it's dirty and it's not Coro.


Tell me what you think. Tell me what you love. Say hi and let's get to know each other.
