Vintage Pearl Brooch Pearls and Diamond Rhinestones

I’ve got a nice find to show you all today. This brooch is a vintage piece from the 1950s.

So it was made the same decade Elvis Presley became famous.

Like Elvis, this brooch is studded with rhinestones.

It’s a little upside down here.

Ah, this is much better!

The pearls are more white than cream (as it appears in the photo).

I bought this specifically to wear with black coats, but I know I’ll wear it with other things.

I like the look of soft white pearls against anything black.

I bought it from Vintage and Victorian for just under $40 USD.
