    I bought this piece to take on a trip for evening events, as I didn't want to risk my good jewelry. I was curious about it and wanted to see if any information could be ascertained by the brooch catch. It can be used as a pendant or a brooch or perhaps the pin is to hold it in place. I couldn't find this catch, which is too curved tubes with one end closed in a cursory search of the net. The pendant is covered in tiny crystals with some larger ones of the side and a faux pearl in the middle. It is all silver toned, the brown colors are just reflections. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    It's a lobster claw clasp, not distinctive of a particular maker.

    I meant the catch for the pin.

    Short form: nope. This might be Thai costume or Indian, best guess. Those are almost never identified.

    But I have no idea of how to verify.

    I followed up. It appeared to be Malaysian.

    Chinese, looking at the language on the website. Whois says it's an Italian IP address, but that happens a lot. I think it's one of those agregate shippers.

    Thanks. I don't know how to interpret the information. I put the maker into Goggle and it took me to a Malaysian site that didn't have the piece. They called it a wedding piece.

    There are a lot of Chinese in Malaysia.
