Costume Heart Designer Brooch With Floral Motif
A splendid interpretation of the classic symbol of love, this heart-shaped designer brooch is sure to capture any heart! Fashioned in gold-tone metal and pavé-style setting, the brooch shimmers all over with a mélange of glittering rhinestones, which have been foil-backed for extra sparkle. The centre features a ribbon-bound flower bouquet in gentle rose and fuschia hues on a dark green background. This marvellous piece of wearable art dates from the 1980s-1990s and is the work of celebrated American costume jewellery designer Dorothy Bauer. Having worked as a professional artist and sculptor, Bauer started her jewellery brand “A Piece of the Rainbow” in 1982 alongside her husband, Robert. The company was renamed “Dorothy Bauer Designs” in 1999 and closed in 2008. Bauer’s style was bold and sculptural, with pavé settings of high-end colourful rhinestones or Swarovski crystals defining her statement pieces. She usually produced jewellery in themed series, such as Christmas, animals, patriotic items or hearts. Fanciful and romantic, wear this heart designer brooch close to yours or gift it to that special someone on Valentine’s Day.
