Vintage Beauty

Hi Everyone~

Nothing says "vintage" like this magnificent 2" round aurora borealis brooch (it's truly vintage--It's not my creation.)

In case you don't know the history of this "rainbow" stone, the Swarovski Company worked very closely with Christian Dior in the 1950s to create a stone that would have this magical affect.

For those who have a love of everything vintage, this stone has resurged as a popular "must-have" item! They have been popping up on scarves, jackets--and even purses all over the country.

But, they are also popular to use as tiebacks for a curtain panel--pretty dreamy, huh?

If you are from the U.S. and would be interested in making a bid or purchasing this piece, you can find it listed here. I only have one! It's only available through Friday of this week.

Lovely piece. I've got 2 of them in my drawer, I think they belonged to my Mum. I'll have to dig them out and use them! Valerie

Hi Cindy Sweetie...
Wow does this ever sparkle. It is so elegant and beautiful, and I can see it attached to so many things. How gorgeous it would be on a lapel, or a scarf, dress or bag? How about a hat? Oh so many beautiful places to display it. I love it.

Hope your week is going good. I am off to study. I have a desk audit on Monday for a promotion, so I have to work and get my ducks in a row for this one. Keep me in your prayers sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
