But, the price tag is an eye watering $3,200 US odd.
Excellent buying yours at $1258!

I'll stick with the "kissing cousin turquoise crescents" :loopy::lol::naughty::dance:

Don't you have sticker shock just looking at how much more similar brooches are? Jpie seriously won the lotto with her brooch!

@JPie I hope you don't mind but I am shamelessly copying your fantastic pendant. I found a similar ruby brooch from a dealer in London. It was in budget and I just ordered it. So excited! I fell in instant love with yours!

So here's a pic. It's only from 1976 so not antique but it was the right price. So excited!

Not in the least! People have been converting crescent pins into necklaces looooooong before I did. I think it's great that old jewelry is getting a new life!
