I just love this estate rainbowy, abalone and sterling silver 925 Mexican leaf brooch! Made from a solid silver base, sterling silver is also used for detail work on the leaf brooch's surface, as well as the stem. The abalone shell inlay is really richly coloured and has gorgeous pinks and purples, along with aqua, seafoam, pale green, and turquoise. Like all abalone, the colours change with the light you're in, and it is bright and reflective, so it captures a lot of light.
The last pictures shows this beautiful silver brooch with a second 925 silver leaf brooch I have for sale, and while this one has a lot of pink, lavender, and purple tones, the other is much cooler, in shades of blues and greens. This listing is just for this brooch, but if you are interested in both, please send me a convo, as I would combine shipping and give you a bit of a deal on the price. The other brooch can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/622235660/estate-sterling-silver-925-mexican?ref=shop_home_active_1
On the back of the pin, this vintage brooch is secured with a still functioning locking c-clasp.
Condition: This lovely 925 vintage Mexican silver brooch has some tarnish marks on the back, and there are a few bends to the pin, but overall the brooch looks good for its age. It shows some of the light wear or slight scratches one associates with previously loved vintage items. More pictures or closer pictures can be provided if you need them.

Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations, and can eliminate the ability to track or insure the package.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
