    Newest find, haven't seen one quite like it. The filigree work gives me a Czech or West Germany vibe. The smaller stones are faceted rhinestones, the central is a glass cabochon. Aqua, green, and purple enameling. Anyone know anything about it? TIA! 71495413_408759383163002_6798271499661737984_n.jpg 71642578_550173569122584_5050704785011900416_n.jpg 72045686_472472356675962_1700695895462379520_n.jpg

    I don't know if the glass is Czech, but I kind of doubt it.

    To me these pressed metal pins make me think 1960s inexpensive costume jewelry.

    It's a pretty pin and I would wear it, but I don't think it is high quality work.

    Only my opinion, please wait for other opinions.

    Thank you @clutteredcloset49. I am so in love with it, but I tend to like the designs over the cost.

    Almost reminds me of something from India (??) maybe not so old. The colors are so vibrant and diverse, doesn't remind me of colors from a vintage piece. If it is pressed metal it would be less expensive to produce, but sure has a lot going on.

    Can see why you like it. :)

    The reason I thought it was older, was because the glass is prong set. Newer pieces are glued in.

    Not always. The better new stuff uses prongs. I think this is fairly recent. Very well made.

    This is not new. I have cleaned this up considerably and had to straighten prongs on settings, and it was found with a lot of old jewelry in an old jewelry box, jewelry was from 30's to about 50's or 60's. I know the former owner.

    Costume jewellery is not my forte, but this doesn't strike me as Czech. Then again, the Czechs made many different styles. It is well made, and the enamel gives it an extra touch.
    Age maybe 60s? Around that time the pin-pendant combo was very popular too.

    Just curious is the gold tone big center piece metal or plastic?

    Metal, and it is really bright gold.
