Big, Large & Huge Vintage Brooches

Costume Jewelry


On this page we will try to gather our biggest rhinestone brooches, those beauties from the
1930s and '1940s. In the past they were called "coat brooches"I like to call them my "big girls."
These large brooches are almost alwaysunsigned, but are beloved by collectors because
they call to mind in the golden age of glamour

Vintage Enameled Floral Spray White Gold Flowers, Green Leaves

This lovely spray brooch is quite vintage, circa late 1940s to early 1950s. This unsigned beauty is in remarkable condition, with enamel, except for a small chip on one of the flower petals is intact and still bright and shining; the gold plating is also intact except for darkening around the stem. Note the golden bud peeking out from beneath the showy white flowers. The brooch is 3 1/2" long, nearly 2 1/2" wide. This layered, 3-d jewel has a good heft. Imagine it's beauty in the joy that followed WWII, pinned to a girl's cloth coat for springtime. How I love these beauties, and wish I could keep them all! But it's yours, in near-Excellent condition! $38


Coro Vintage Brooch

Reverse

 

 

Coro Blue Navette Enamel Floral Spray Big Coat Brooch

Beautifully vintage, this sweeping  spray was probably done in the early 1940s prior to WWII. If you look at the Coro patent styles of this era you will notice they used enamels on their big brooches in the early 1940s, but it could have been made as late as the early  1950s. This is a well preserved, gorgeous brooch. The gold plating has wear only on the tops of the prongs setting the blue navettes, though the foil on the back of the navettes is intact. The green enamels are intact. Someone probably kept this pretty in her jewel box to wear on special occasions. Large at 3 1/2" tall by 2" wide, this treasure is in Very Good+ condition and could be yours--or hers--this season! $58 


Coro Order of the Royal Garter Star Brooch

Reverse

 

Coro Amazing Sunburst Star Brooch with Black Cameo

This striking brooch offers a black vintage plastic cameo--the little German headband girl, in a striking mid-century sunburst setting. The large, heavy,  setting is done with individual "bursts"--beaded strips of raised polished goldtone knobs. The gilded and antiqued cast metalwork is stunning. Sun/starbursts were popular motifs during the atomic era, but this brooch doesn't seem to fit with those styles--it appears to be more a late 1930s-early 1940s creation. In fact, except for the cameo, it looks exactly like a symbol for the Order of the Royal Garter! Measuring 2 3/4" tall x 2 1/2" wide, this incredible jewel is also chunky, rising in a dome shape about 3/4" from the pinstem. This black beauty is bound to be noticed. Signed in back in script with no copyright mark, Coro. Very Good condition. Unusual and rare! $65

 


Book Piece!
Large Vintage Brooch

Detail   Reverse

 

Glorious Vintage Big Brooch with Gumdrop Fuchsia Moonglow 

This buxom beauty reminds me of early Coro, but it's an unsigned beauty. The brooch is a book piece, a blue version featured in Leigh Leshner's VINTAGE JEWELRY 1920-1940. The undulating stalk and curved leaves are made of silver plated pot metal, studded here and there with clear round rhinestones set in highly beaded metal. This design makes the brooch shimmer as if there were more rhinestones than there actually are. The brooch is heavy for it's size, and also has rhinestones at the bottoms of the flower stalks, clues to designer quality. The fuchsia moonglow cabs are smooth and mesmerizing. The brooch is 3 7/8" tall x 2 18" wide. Though the rhinestones are aging, there are still plenty of twinkle left in this piece of jewelry history! Just Very Good. $55


Beaded Cluster Crystals Rhinestones Haskell Style Brooch

Reverse

Bewitching Autumn Beaded Cluster Brooch   4"

The bewitching hour is near, and time to wear this mysteriously Haskell style beaded flower brooch, decorated with clusters of glass moonstones, faux pearls and rhinestones in undreamed of color combinations--teal, hyacinth, fruit & gold! Rose montees glisten from golden lacy filigree in a wealth of autumn crowded into one spectacular brooch. Warmth. The brooch is 4" tall, the base flower formed by a wondrously undulating filigree and twisted chain forming the stem along with golden beads as florets. This brooch is chunky, rising 3/4" above the pin stem. Very Good + condition. $38


Vintage Sterling Silver Lambs Brooch

Reverse

Sterling Silver Mother Sheep and Baby Lamb Brooch

The lush 3-D design is what makes this piece extra special, with plump fluffiness in the mama and the little baby lamb, both with bells around their necks. This great jewel is 2 1/2" tall and 2 3/4" wide; it is also thick and heavy. It has been well cared for and is in Excellent condition. This brooch weighs one ounce! Marked in back, partially rubbed away, "STERLING." $78

Book Piece Beauty!
Large Pave Iris Orchid Brooch

Reverse

Large 1930s Pave Rhinestone Iris Pot Metal Brooch

Made in the art deco era, this circa 1930 pot metal iris offers a tropical deco design--the wild undulations, while curvy, still have a linear Art Deco deco arrangement. My heart beats fast every time I see this Book Piece beauty. Featured on page 74 of the 2008 Edition of Warman's Vintage Jewelry, by Leigh Leshner, this incredible design features pave clear crystals set in textured and beaded metal. This one's a little different than the same style of brooches shown in the same book on page 122. For one thing, some of the rhinestones are prong set--on a row icing the top of the brooch and on the florets at 5 O'clock and 7 o'clock. Also, this brooch is taller at 3 3/4", and willowy at 2 1/8" at the widest point. This example is in especially nice Very Good+ condition, with rhinestones still sparkling and pot metal smooth, still shining and without corrosion. Only the prong-set stones are slightly dark around the edges, but still strike sparks in the centers. Enjoy this desirable, hard- to find, dazzling showgirl beauty! $75
