Don’t let this beautiful vintage brooch flutter by! It would look amazing pinned to your favorite cardigan, or could make a lovely memory as “something blue” for a wedding!

The brooch was designed by Nina Ricci, and made by Avon during the 1970s. The setting is made of brass. You can feel the high quality of the materials by the weight of it.

The front of the butterfly is painted enamel in a beautiful shade of blue. Sparkling aurora borealis rhinestones decorate the wings of the butterfly. They really shine with movement and you can see flecks of green and pink in the stones as the light moves over the stones. Some of the rhinestones are marquee shaped, and some are circular, and alternate between light and dark blue throughout the brooch.

The brooch measures 1.5 inches tall, by 2 inches wide. The butterfly’s wings are slightly angled to add an extra bit of dimention and visual interest to the piece. The body segments and antenna of the butterfly, as well as the back side, are made of solid antique finish brass. The pin clasp works great, and the back of the brooch is stamped “avon”.

This item shows very little sign of age. It is in excellent vintage condition and was stored in a smoke-free environment.
