These beauties are quite large and they’re works of art. They’d be suitable (no pun intended) on a jacket a or coat like the one shown yesterday. Although they look like costume jewelry and are set with rhinestones or semi-precious stones, they are hand-made of sterling silver and could be classified as fine jewelry.
Back in the ’40’s – ’50’s there were “walking suits” made, which had jackets almost like small coats and substantial enough to be worn in cool or cold weather without an outerwear coat on top. A beautiful art piece like this on a lapel would be the perfect finish.
These are some of the most gorgeous statement pieces I own . … . ..
