Vintage Marvella Costume Wreath Pin Brooch
Substantial and impressive, this wreath pin brooch is the perfect holiday gift for that special someone with an affection for classic vintage jewellery. This refined piece is beautifully crafted in brushed gold-tone metal and centred with a round smoky quartz glass set in prongs. Textured swirling leaves wrap the central stone, adding an element of almost hypnotising motion. Dated circa the 1980s-1990s, this gorgeous pin brooch is signed by Marvella, an iconic American costume jewellery brand founded in 1911. The company had many subsidiaries and used several different hallmarks over the years, making it easy for collectors to date the items. It’s famous for producing costume jewellery with faceted beads and “the loveliest pearls made by man”, as well as pieces designed by acclaimed designer Kenneth Jay Lane. The brand was bought by Trifari in 1982 and later sold to the Monet Group, and they stopped using the Marvella hallmark in 2016. Highly collectable and elegant, this pin brooch will upgrade even the simplest outfit. Wear it on the lapel of your coat or blazer for a strikingly dramatic effect.
