Pennino Gilt Metal Ribbon Brooch Exquisite Design and Detail
This is a gorgeous vintage Pennino gilt-metal ribbon brooch. It embodies the exquisite design and workmanship that jewelry collectors and historians have come to recognize in the quality of this company’s. The Pennino brothers established a level jewelry making that few ever accomplished leaving a legacy of highly sought after costume jewelry. This three-dimensional design is created by the use of four screws holding the castings together. The use of these tiny screws allowed for substantial depth and height in the design. This design has a luscious round of hand-prong-set aqua-colored rhinestones flanked by curls of small tool-set crystal stones and rose gold-colored curls and volutes. The piece is weighty and quite substantial. It is marked Pennino only and is not a sterling vermeil piece.
