The frame of the brooch is a delightful engraved and scrolled silver design which softens the precise pattern of stones.
The “T” pin and “C” clasp are entirely original. A small ring has been added at some time to make the piece possible to be worn as a pendent. It is best worn as a brooch. The condition is excellent.

In 1973, and again in 1974, the company showed full color ads of their "Artist’s Series". These have no rhinestones, but feature geometric and abstract designs in enamel. According to Harrice Miller’s books (especially her second edition) some of the artists providing inspiration were: Braque, Miro, Chargill, Calder, Vesarely, Picasso and Pucci.
Sometimes this jewelry was made in sets including bracelets, pendants, pins, earrings, and rings. The color combinations were blue, turquoise, and green, also tan, orange, and brown, plus other variations. Some are solid brick red with black lines; others look as if the painted design was an oriental word. The enamel completely covered the metal. One of the ads states that it was baked 27 times!
